In the past, The Temple has conducted an annual High Holy Day appeal to help raise additional funds. These funds help supplement regular dues collections that are typically insufficient to meet our typical budgetary and capital expenses. As other organizations have done, we’ve decided to push this appeal to the end of the year to help members with tax planning.
Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our members, we continue to be in a solid financial position. Moreover, The Temple’s investment assets have appreciated due to healthy gains in the stock market, ensuring a stable financial future. While there was significant fiscal anxiety during the earlier parts of the pandemic, The Temple emerged more robust than ever thanks to our leadership and staff’s vigilant management.
By way of this letter, I am writing to ask you to make a financial contribution to help us continue our outstanding programming and build MORE initiatives that positively impact the community. No donation is too small, but I hope you decide to give as generously as possible.
We are doing so much right at The Temple and want to continue providing innovative programming. You can also donate easily online by filling out the form here. There is no more worthy cause than our congregation.
Finally, we recognize that certain constraints may keep you from making a financial donation. We realize that many congregants donate their time and talent as well. We view this as equally valuable, and if you cannot donate monetarily, I hope you offer to volunteer and participate in our programming.
I appreciate your consideration. If you would like to discuss anything, don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also be glad to set up a phone call.
Thank you for your continued support.
Michael Salamon, MD
