New or increased gifts made through the end of Hanukkah will be doubled by a generous supporter of the Institute.
Your matched gift will help to support a range of innovative programs across Israel that serve as engines for tolerance, mutual respect, and inclusive Judaism. Help make a modern Hanukkah miracle – turn $1 into $2 by making a first-time gift or increasing your gift to the Shalom Hartman Institute in 2020.
I have never made a gift to the Shalom Hartman Institute before. Will my gift count toward the match?
Yes! Any gift of up to $25,000 from a donor who has never given to SHI will be matched.
I have been a donor to SHI in the past. Will my gift this year be matched?
Our anonymous donor will match the increased portion of your 2020 giving above the highest amount you gave in 2018 or 2019, up to $25,000:
I’d like to pay my 2019 pledge now. Will it count toward the match?
No, unfortunately payments on pledges made prior to 2020 will not be matched.
Can I make an in-kind donation toward the match?
Can I designate my gift?
To comply with the request of the donor, all gifts made as part of the matching campaign will be designated toward our educational programs in Israel, including the Beit Midrash for Israeli Rabbis, Be’eri Program for Pluralistic Jewish-Israeli Identity, Min HaBe’erot, and Hevruta Gap-Year Program.
Can I make my gift in honor/in memory of someone?
Yes. Please fill out the appropriate fields on the donation form.
I want to contribute, but not online. What should I do?
You can make your gift by check, DAF, wire transfer, or phone.
I want to make a contribution in CAD or ILS.
I still don’t understand if my gift will be matched.
Please contact us by email or 212-268-0300 and we will be happy to help determine if your contribution meets the conditions for being matched.
