Endowments provide a meaningful long term donation to Shearith Israel, ensuring that the donor’s designated area of support is funded in perpetuity in their name. When a donor funds an endowment, Shearith invests and protects the capital, spending only an approved percentage of the annual investment return. We welcome the opportunity to establish endowments in the name of an individual or family, honoring the vision and passion of the donor. An endowment can be established for a minimum amount of $10,000.
