The Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund
The Amy Adina Schulman Memorial is an endowment fund started in 1987 to commemorate the brief but vibrant life of a twenty year old college student, a neuropsychology major, and an activist for ten years in the progressive Labor Zionist Youth Movement, Habonim-Dror. Adina died suddenly from a burst aneurysm while a student in her junior year at Rutgers University.
ALL CONTRIBUTIONS BECOME PART OF THE ENDOWMENT BASE. Annual contributions have enabled the Fund to support an ever growing number of applicants. The Schulman family covers all administrative costs required to maintain and develop the Fund. Contributors receive the newsletter published each September with excerpted reports from a sampling of that year's recipients. To date, the Fund has awarded more than 500 grants to individuals who have participated in progressive social action projects of their choice.
All contributions to the Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund are fully tax deductible; the Fund has been classified by the IRS as an educational 501(c)(3) organization. Monies in the endowment base are professionally managed.
The Fund provides the opportunity to make a donation to celebrate a special occasion or a life cycle event. A personalized acknowledgement card is sent immediately to the family or person notifying them of your thoughtful gift. We do not include the amount of the donation unless you specifically request that it be included. Past grant recipients are the newest group of annual contributors, ensuring support for an increasing number of grantees.

Gifts of Stock
Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
If you would like to invest in the Fund by donating stock, please note the following:

You may also make a gift to the Fund by leaving a bequest in your will, either a specific amount of money, or a specified percentage of the residue of your estate (that which is left over after all specific gifts have been made whether charitable or non-charitable). Such a bequest may be included in the body of a will or as an amendment (codicil). Please consult your attorney and/or financial advisor for specific information.
