The Temple-Tifereth Israel a Jewish Reform Synagogue
Here at The Temple, we strive to offer experiences and opportunities that match each of our member’s interests and needs. That is really what the heart of the All In Campaign (this year’s annual campaign) is all about. Whether you are school-age, a college student, young professional, new family, recent empty nester, or part of our older generation community, the All In Campaign will continue to allow us to meet the needs of all our members. With your contribution to the All In Campaign, we will continue to offer all of the programs you have come to know and love, all while enhancing and strengthening what we offer. We are excited to continue to enrich every member of our Temple community and encourage you to participate with us. Why? Because this is YOUR Temple and YOUR community.
We are grateful to our congregants and friends whose support makes a difference every day in worship, in education, in social action, in arts and music programming, for all generations. We welcome you to learn more about our giving opportunities below:
Funds are established by Congregants and other donors in order to:
– Honor or memorialize loved ones
– Support a program or activity which is especially meaningful to them
– Create a lasting legacy at The Temple
– Model for others the positive impact of philanthropy on our Congregation
A signed fund agreement is required to establish a fund. Gifts are acknowledged with a formal tax letter and are listed in monthly issues of the Temple Times. All funds are listed on our website so that fund sponsors as well as others may make ongoing contributions to them. From time to time, these funds, the motivation of the sponsors, and the use of the funds to support programs or activities are featured in the Temple Times and on our website. Fund sponsors receive an annual Fund Activity Report. All funds are held by The Temple Tifereth Israel, and are invested, currently in large part with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s investment pool.
Tribute Funds may be established with a minimum gift of $5,000. As to spending, both principal and/or investment income generated by the Fund may be used for the purpose specified without limitation.
Endowment Funds may be established with a minimum gift of $10,000 paid over a maximum of two years. Principal may not be spent, so spending for the specified purpose must come from investment income generated by the Fund and is limited to a formula approximating 5% of the Fund so that the Fund will continue to grow.
