Giving Opportunities

Your steadfast support of the All In Campaign demonstrates your commitment to keeping The Temple vibrant and strong, both financially and spiritually. The Temple connects us to our own place in the world, our place in history and our place in the life of our community.

How has The Temple been able to maintain its position as an inspiring, strong and unique congregation for more than 160 years? 

It’s YOU, your family and friends. It’s our clergy, our worship, educational and cultural opportunities. It’s the connections and the relationships that make us who we are, building on the past and present for our future.  

Your gift to the All In Campaign enables The Temple to remain fiscally sound and maintain and improve the programs, education and events that you have come to appreciate and expect. This year our goal is to raise $400,000. Do you know that The Temple’s annual operating costs are roughly $3,691 per membership while standard dues with security fee are $2,308 per membership? Your “fair share” gift helps bridge this gap. It also allows The Temple to fulfill its mission of never turning away a member because of an inability to pay our standard dues.

We thank you again for your support and appreciate your generosity as you consider your 2019-2020 gift. 

With gratitude and best wishes for a happy, healthy, sweet and peaceful New Year.
Rachel Feinleib and Dina Rock

Thank you to our 2019-2020* donors for being All In!

Giving Logo

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:

Make a tribute gift in honor or in memory of a loved one

Fund Focus
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.

There are many ways you can make an impactful Gift in our Online Donation Center

For more information about the All In Campaign, other giving opportunities, or if you are interested in learning more about establishing a tribute or an endowment fund, please contact Melissa Siegel, Special Projects Coordinator, at 216.455.1725 or msiegel@ttti.org.
