Three ways to give to JRI-Poland

Announcing: The JRI-Poland Membership!

The new JRI-Poland $54 annual membership will allow any researcher to proudly contribute to JRI-Poland’s organizational well-being and pay for the financial and computer processing needs that keep us free and available on the Internet. Your annual membership will be renewable on the anniversary of your “join date” and will also provide several special benefits to entice you to become a member and continue to contribute to our charitable organization, but will be intangible, and therefore keep your membership gift tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. JRI-Poland is a registered 501(c)(3) in the United States. Click here to join as a New Member!

At the present time, we envision membership benefits to include:

  • A special membership newsletter or blog/vlog to keep our members current on our projects and on research tips.
  • Exclusive members only Zoom sessions with our experts, including our founding Executive Director, Stanley Diamond.
  • “Early” access to data that has been assembled and paid for, before it is released to the public on our online database. (Coming Soon!)
  • Other special offerings to be presented as we can find the volunteers to organize them for you!

JRI-Poland is an independent, non-profit organization. Donations by U.S. citizens and non-citizens with U.S. income are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

To help fund JRI-Poland's research and growth, please contribute directly through our Donation page. JRI-Poland fundraising is "shtetl-specific" so that you can direct your donations to support indexing records for your town(s).

JRI-Poland's administration, projects, operations and fundraising are entirely independent and separate from JewishGen.org. Donations made to JewishGen do NOT support the indexing/extractions of your town's records.
