Ways to Give

So Many Ways To Give!

There as many ways to support Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation as there are reasons to contribute to our ongoing excellence.

Our staff stands ready to connect you with opportunities for giving that advance your spiritual, financial, and philanthropic goals. 

Here are just some of the ways to give:


IHC welcomes gifts of securities. Making a stock transfer is both simple and beneficial: you will enjoy an immediate tax deduction for the value of the stock transfer and avoid paying capital gains taxes. You may also reduce your taxable estate by donating stock. Please contact our Executive Director Dan Silien to make arrangements!

Donor Advised Fund or Foundation

As a 501(c)(3) public charity, the Washington Hebrew Congregation is eligible for grants made through a foundation or from donor-advised funds. Please contact our Executive Director to make arrangements!

CorporateGift Matching

If your employer matches employee charitable contributions, you might be able to compound the impact of your donation to Washington Hebrew Congregation.

Contact your company’s matching gifts coordinator to determine whether your donation to IHC is eligible to be matched. Then, contact Executive Director Dan Silien to share your plans.

Planned Giving

Creating your Legacy with a Planned Gift to IHC empowers you to invest in our future through the financial and estate planning decisions you make today.

There are many options which can enable you to make a meaningful gift, satisfy your financial concerns, and offer you significant tax advantages. Please consult your legal and/or financial advisor about including Temple in your estate plans with a bequest, charitable trust, life insurance policy, or other appropriate vehicle. To notify us of a gift to the Temple in your estate plans, please contact Executive Director, Dan Silien.
