Meet Sue Benyowitz, A Yad Sarah Charitable Gift Annuity Donor


While Sue had always wanted to support Yad Sarah for the critical services it offers to anyone in Israel in need, she found the Charitable Gift Annuity, with its tax benefits and significant fixed lifetime payments, to be an attractive option for her financially, now that she is retired. "They help you along every step of the donation process. They make it easy, and I just had to sign on the dotted line," she recalled.

Reflecting on Yad Sarah's impact, Sue fondly recalls volunteering to staff the Yad Sarah booth at the Los Angeles Israel Festival several years ago. Scores of Israeli expats approached her, explaining how much they had missed Yad Sarah's services since moving to America. Sue had lived in Israel—working as one of Jerusalem's first ultrasound technicians—and had admired the organization, Sue realized for the first time just how deeply Yad Sarah impacts Israeli society. 

Yad Sarah, she said, is more than just an organization. It's an enduring point of pride and a testament to the compassion and resiliency of the Jewish people.

"When I go to Israel, I see Yad Sarah's logo on trucks and vans -- accessible transportation that I know is helping someone in need -- I definitely feel a sense of pride," Sue said. "I just wish more Americans knew about it."
