Spring Renewal Campaign

Spring Renewal Campaign - The Selfhelp Home

Your Help is Needed!

Just as Selfhelp’s founders set out in 1938 with a goal to create a place where Holocaust refugees and survivors could find community and rebuild their lives, today we have an opportunity to emerge from the pandemic with a renewed spirit – and a few essential building updates.

From upgrading the 9th floor Solarium, to renovating the Long-Term Care units on the 7th and 8th floors, to other required maintenance throughout Selfhelp, we are looking forward to refreshing and renewing our physical space. Improvements such as a renovated social hall, new elevators, and updated living spaces will keep our building as warm and welcoming as the people who reside and work within it.

You can help us enhance our space so our community and traditions can shine even brighter by making your contribution today.

To make a gift of stocks/securities

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to The Selfhelp Home, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date we receive the transfer.

Please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by e-mailing [email protected]. If you need to speak to someone 24/7, you can call SCHWAB ALLIANCE @ 800-515-2157 (24/7) with any questions.
