TBE Fund Annual Appeal

“I am grateful for the generosity of temple members who enable our community to develop the leaders of tomorrow and improve our world.”

~ Rabbi Joel Sisenwine

TBE depends on three primary sources of revenue:
membership dues, fees, and the philanthropy of members through the TBE Fund.

TBE Depends on You

 

Dues and fees cover only a portion of the actual cost of running our temple. We depend on member support of our TBE Fund Annual Appeal.

Your contribution enables our congregation to welcome all who value extraordinary clergy and spiritual practices, uplifting music, world-class learning programs for youth and adults, innovative social and cultural programming, and dedicated support for members in need of healing.

  • Approximately 25 percent of our congregants receive financial assistance with dues — all are welcome
  • Tuition and fees covers just over 50 percent of the costs of our award-winning education programs
  • Annual Appeal philanthropy from members accounts for almost 20 percent of income and expenses
  • Through donations and/or social action, TBE supports more than 60 nonprofit partners, both domestically and internationally

Progress Toward Goals

As an anonymous donor explains, “Helping TBE thrive is also helping to keep Judaism alive and well in America and Israel.”
Dues and fees cover only a portion of the actual cost of running our temple year in and year out. We depend on member support of our TBE Fund Annual Appeal.

 

Please help us reach our goal of $1.2M dollars and 100% community participation from all congregants by June 30, 2020!

Sustaining Society Levels

We now give our community the option of including sponsorship towards our annual fundraising event as part of your annual commitment. The Saturday, May 2 event replaces previous years’ Evening to Remember and will include a new format and program.

Please consider participating at a level that is comfortable for your family. Pledges can be made throughout the year and payment is due by June 30.
