Ways to Give
Thank you for your generous support!
A variety of opportunities are available to enable you to recognize a significant occasion, remember a loved one, support our congregation and schools, make a gift, and fulfill your philanthropic goals. We invite you to contact our Executive Director, R2xlbm4gRWFzdG9u or our KSDS Development Director, QWxpc29uIFdpZWxlY2hvd3NraQ==, should you wish to discuss a gift to the congregation or our schools, or for information on the giving opportunities listed below.
Our Annual Campaign Appeal provides essential resources that enable the congregation and schools to operate creatively and flourish providing funds for enhancements to our programming and curriculum. Dues and tuition do not cover the full costs of serving our membership and school families. Our annual campaign appeal contributions fund nearly 6% of the costs of our total budget each year and enable us to expand and increase our programs, assist families in need of school scholarships, and welcome young members unable to manage the full brunt of membership dues. The Annual Appeal Campaign supports congregational life and Jewish education for all ages. The Annual Campaign relies on you and may be designated towards synagogue programs and general support or towards one of our excellent schools.
Tribute Gifts to Chizuk Amuno Congregation or to one of our schools in honor or in memory of friends and loved ones, to wish a speedy recovery or to express appreciation are a meaningful way to acknowledge occasions and milestones
Designated gifts ($1,000 and above) encompass contributions for capital improvements, additions to our endowment funds, special purposes identified by our leadership, and support for ongoing programs and the creation of new programs or projects that fulfill our mission and vision.
Chizuk Amuno Foundation
The Chizuk Amuno Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that oversees the management of restricted and unrestricted endowment funds to support all aspects of congregational and school life including tuition assistance, capital maintenance, and social service and educational programs.
The income from our endowment funds provides between six and seven percent of the total operating budget for our synagogue and schools. Named funds range from $5,000 to over $3,000,000.
Visit the Chizuk Amuno Foundation page for a complete description of our history and purpose as well as various ways to give.
Charitable Gift Planning
In addition to outright gifts, Charitable Gift Planning is an effective way to provide for the future of Chizuk Amuno Congregation and our schools. A variety of opportunities are available to enable donors to fulfill philanthropic goals, while making efficient use of their financial resources. Our bequest society, Bonei Amuno, recognizes those who have signed a Letter of Intent representing a moral commitment to include the congregation in their estate planning.
