Jewish learning inspires our charitable giving as we seek to leave the world a better place than we found it. The Chalom Latid: Dreaming for Tomorrow Campaign goal is to increase the endowment fund threefold by our 150th anniversary in 2017, and greatly expand the resources available for Temple needs. This fund will give us the ability to be responsive to the needs of our members, to maintain dues at a reasonable level, to respond with immediacy to unplanned expenses and to be secure, even in challenging financial times. A strong endowment allows us to continue to be a visionary congregation, always looking to the future.
You can support this effort in a variety of ways including current and planned gifts. Your support of the endowment fund will ensure that the important work of The Temple will continue in perpetuity.
Current Gifts include the following:
Cash: A donor may support the campaign with a gift or pledge of cash; pledges are payable over a period of up to five years.
Gifts of Securities: Giving publicly traded appreciated securities offer donors tax advantages. Not only can the donor deduct the full fair market value of the security; the donor can also avoid capital gains tax on the application.
Planned Gifts include the following:
Bequests: A donor may name The Temple as a beneficiary of his or her will, either with a designated amount, a percentage, or as a recipient of funds after other beneficiaries have received their bequests.
Gifts of Life Insurance: Donors may support The Temple through a gift of life insurance. They may either purchase a policy or give a policy they already own. If a donor makes The Temple the owner and beneficiary of the policy, the gift is deductible.
Gifts from Retirement Plans: Donors of any age can make a deferred gift of an IRA or other retirement account by naming The Temple as a beneficiary of the account at their death.
Charitable Trusts: A variety of trust arrangements are available that offer income and/or estate tax benefits to the donor.
To support the campaign, fill out a campaign pledge form and mail to The Temple or give online.
