Year End Giving

SHH 2021 Year End Giving

Your Help is Needed!

We are so grateful for our amazing community who has stood by us during the challenges we’ve faced since the start of the pandemic, almost two years ago.

We are proud of our amazing staff who have continued to make the overall welfare of residents their top priority. It is this love for the work we do that ensures we will be here for the last generation of Holocaust Survivors and the many others who do and will call Selfhelp home.

And this level of care has real and true costs associated with it. On average, the difference between the cost of care – including medical, dietary, housekeeping, programming and Jewish life enrichment – and what is covered by payments made by residents, their families and programs such as Medicare is $18,000 per resident per year to be covered by fundraising and other revenue building initiatives. And that’s why we need your help.

You can help us maintain resident care at the highest levels by making your contribution to Selfhelp 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.
