Life and Legacy

What will your legacy be?

Your ongoing generosity in supporting our organization is deeply appreciated. But did you know that you can give a gift that can make a difference for generations to come?

Through a gift to the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh in your will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy, you can leave a legacy of standing up to antisemitism and fighting hatred. Your gift will be used to make sure future generations never forget the horrors of the Holocaust and the danger of unchecked violence and hate. Your gift could make the difference in finally creating a world free of hatred and antisemitism.

Your gift can be funded during your lifetime or distributed from your estate.

To learn more about making the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh part of your legacy, or if you have already included the Center in your planning, please contact Lauren Bairnsfather at lbairnsfather@hcpgh.org.

If you are ready to start now, it’s as simple as filling out and submitting a Declaration of Intent.

Testimonials

“It is a great honor and privilege for us to commit a gift to the Life and Legacy of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh. As Christians, we always want to stand with and bless God’s special, Covenant people, as it says in Genesis 12:3 – “I will bless them that bless thee.” We always desire that our lives show forth mercy and compassion to the afflicted and downtrodden, no matter who they are. We always stand against hatred and intolerance in all forms. We could not think of a better institution to which we could leave a legacy.” -Arlene and Jeff Berg

“The educational mission of the Holocaust Center is immeasurably enriched by the participation of Holocaust Survivors. Our parents and grandparents speak with a moral leadership that cannot be equaled. But as we look to the future, we know that they have a finite time with us. It’s critically important that their stories be preserved and continue to be told. As the descendants of survivors, we have a responsibility to extend their message into the future. We gave to the Life & Legacy program to secure our Jewish Legacy!” -Jake and Rebecca Jacobson

“My commitment to Life and Legacy and specifically the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is pretty simple. I’m a child of Holocaust survivors and I want to be sure that programs at the Center carry on their legacy and millions of others’ to ensure that history is not forgotten. I strongly believe that education is the answer to making this world a better place.” -Deborah Leuchter Stueber

“Eva and I thought it was important that we chose to be a Life and Legacy donor for the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh. Firstly, Eva’s parents were Holocaust survivors and it is important for future generations, that we do not forget the terrible ordeal that they suffered because they were Jewish. Secondly, we are concerned, that with the rise of white supremacy targeting not only Jews but also blacks, Asians and other minorities, that Holocaust Center will be needed to continuously educate about the horrors of anti-Semitism and other racist ideologies.” – Eva and Gary Friedman

“As the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is near and dear to my heart. The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh ensures that the stories of survivors and lessons of the Holocaust continue to be taught in innovative ways to future generations of students; that is why I have chosen to be a Life and Legacy donor for the Holocaust Center.” -Alison Karabin

“I believe that the mission of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh to commemorate and educate is critically important, now more than ever. I am supporting the Center with a Life and Legacy gift to make sure that this mission is carried out for many generations to come.” -Judith Cohen
