Susila Dharma USA Endowment Fund

Your contribution to the SD USA Endowment Fund ensures that Bapak’s vision of Subud’s worldwide support of charitable endeavors will continue. The earnings from your invested gift generate sustaining income that is used to support programs and initiatives of Susila Dharma. There are many ways to participate:

  • Cash and securities: a gift—large or small—of cash or appreciated securities can provide a tax deduction and may avoid capital gains tax.
  • Planned gifts: wills and bequests, life estate agreements and trusts are planned gifts that help grow the endowment over time.
  • Insurance policy and other plans: naming SD USA as the sole or partial beneficiary of a life insurance policy, IRA or pension plan, or giving ownership of a policy to SD USA.

How do you know your donation is properly cared for? A professional investment company is used to maintain the Endowment Fund. The SD USA Board of Directors uses clear policies to utilize the earnings of the Fund to fund Susila Dharma project grant requests. Your donation or bequest is held in confidence and can remain anonymous if you wish.

To make a contribution to the SD USA Endowment Fund, contact Aminah Hermann (210-875-7861) our Chairperson, or Rifka Several (559-731-2962), our office manager.

Thank you for considering an endowment to support the work of Susila Dharma. Your interest and response to Bapak’s vision will strengthen and sustain our activities. Please contact the SD USA office for further information.

“Charitable giving is like a drop of water in the ocean. All the drops contribute to the whole. It’s the combined efforts of everyone that creates results.”
