Terumah: Gifts from the Heart
Use this page to contribute to your intended terumah membership pledge and to give additional "gifts from the heart." To set-up a monthly terumah donation, click here.
By abolishing mandatory dues, we are striving to make membership in T'chiyah accessible for all. We ask members to pledge as much as they are able, knowing that our community consists of people across the economic spectrum.
Per our collectively-ratified budget, T'chiyah's projected expenditures (which includes staff compensation, programming costs, building expenses, and more) for 2019-2020 are about $137,000. Thanks to a generous grant from the D. Dan & Betty Kahn Foundation, the amount we need to raise through membership pledges is reduced to $70,000, resulting in a per member average cost of $824/year.
$824/year equates to about $70/month. We invite you to give $72 a month (4 x Chai!), or more if you are able.
Keep in mind that many members are unable to give the average -- if you have the means, we ask that you give above average to sustain our growing community. If you would like to speak about your pledge amount to the Rabbi or Board President/Treasurer, please contact staff and we will connect you with the relevant personnel.
