Good Without God SHJ Awarded Seal of Excellence
The Society for Humanistic Judaism has received the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence. This seal is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.

IRA Tax Break Continues for Donors Age 70 1/2 and Older
NOW is the time for you to make a tax-free donation to the Society for Humanistic Judaism out of your individual retirement account. Under the tax bill passed by Congress, Americans age 70½ and older are again able to make tax-free donations out of their individual retirement accounts totaling up to $100,000 per year. The new tax law applies retroactively to gifts made in the 2012 tax year and continues through 2013. You can take advantage of this significant savings if you make your gift directly from your IRA. Check with your accountant before making such distributions to be sure that you are eligible for this exemption. Contact Bonnie Cousens, SHJ Executive Director, for more information. Such gifts may not be made online.

Donate through the Combined Federal Campaign
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the Federal government's annual charity workplace campaign, encourages Federal employees, including civilian, postal, and military employees, to support charities that improve our quality of life. The Society for Humanistic Judaism has received donations through the CFC that benefit our programs and initiatives for the past five years. Please search for the Society for Humanistic Judaism on your CFC Charity List and support the cultural programs that provide a meaningful Jewish community for cultural, secular and Humanistic Jews.

Thank you for your support!
