*Subsidy is available to individuals ages 40 and under who have not received a subsidy for a previous YLD Israel mission. The YLD Weinberg Mission to Israel is generously supported by a fund established by Penni & Steve Weinberg. Accepting mission subsidy, may affect the tax deductibility of an individual’s contribution to Federation’s 2023 Campaign for Jewish Needs.

All participants will be asked to make a voluntary commitment of $1,000 or more to the 2023 Campaign for Jewish Needs.

Accepting mission subsidy, may affect the tax deductibility of an individual's contribution to Federation's 2023 Campaign for Jewish Needs.

Pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code, the amount of payments that may be claimed as a charitable contribution are reduced by the fair market value of benefits deemed to have been received by the contributor.

The $1,000 cost of the mission, as a general rule, is not deductible as a charitable gift.

With respect to a voluntary gift to the Campaign made in connection with this Mission, the value of any subsidy received represents a benefit, which must be subtracted from the amount of the gift in determining the allowable charitable deduction.

Jewish Federation of Cleveland does not render tax or legal advice; this statement of general principles should be reviewed with your own tax preparer.
