In 1944, when Frieda Schiff Warburg donated the Warburg family home to The Jewish Museum, she made an extraordinary gift to the Jewish community and to the world of art and culture.

The Warburg Society honors those individuals who have created a lasting legacy by including The Jewish Museum in gift and estate plans. By becoming a member of the Warburg Society, not only are you advancing the mission of The Jewish Museum, but you will enjoy benefits, such as:
  • Invitations to special Museum events and programs
  • Recognition at our annual Warburg Society tea
  • Having your name listed in The Jewish Museum's newsletter

Planned gifts can enhance your income and reduce taxes -- all while maintaining The Jewish Museum as a source of education, inspiration and enjoyment for future generations. If you are interested in learning more about the Warburg Society, please contact Lisa Metcalf, Director of Development, at 212.423.3296 or via email at

Below, we have provided additional information about different ways to create a lasting legacy at The Jewish Museum.
