Your gift to Brandeis Marin transforms lives.

Our family has been actively involved in Brandeis Marin for over 20 years. The education our daughters received and the community we all became part of are special to us and play a very important role in Jewish communal life in Marin County.

Donor-Advised Fund

I support the school through my donor-advised fund (DAF). My three siblings and I each established a DAF. We each feel more empowered to give from individual DAFs. It is also an advantageous way of giving appreciated stock and contributing in amounts that feel right for us.

For me, a gift of stock is a no-brainer because when I donate appreciated stock, I get a tax write-off. To click and download a credit card may be easy, but calling my broker is just as easy and I get the tax benefit. Whether it’s stock transfer or DAF, they both have tax advantages.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Barbara C. Harris, Director of Advancement

The IRA Charitable Rollover allows taxpayers age 70½ or older to transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA accounts directly to charity without first having to recognize the distribution as income.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity to help further our mission, or if you have any questions, please contact Barbara C. Harris, our Director of Advancement.

Brandeis Marin is a pillar of the Marin Jewish community. It has Jewish values and does a great job of integrating Jewish history and culture to its studies. It has produced citizens of the world and is an incredible tool for growing and strengthening community in Marin.

We support Brandeis Marin by contributing from a donor-advised fund or an IRA. Instead of making a gift with a credit card or writing a check, it’s certainly easier to take money out of your IRA because it’s tax free, and you can take a tax deduction.

Spring Simcha '23

(415) 472-1833

Sharon and Orr have served with distinction as volunteer leaders of Brandeis Marin for over 12 years. From the start-up days of 2014 to the challenging years of the pandemic, Orr’s nine-year career on the board of trustees and extended term as President has been nothing short of consequential. Brandeis Marin can always count on the Shakkeds to show up, share their talents, and lead the way. They represent what is best about our community – families sharing themselves to fulfill the promise of tomorrow.
