Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal

Each year, Temple Emanu-El asks members to support our community with an Annual Appeal gift. This gift is critical to keeping our Temple strong and vibrant.  Here are just a few facts to consider…

  •  The Community Commitment Pledge model only covers 60% of the Temple’s financial needs; we need to fill the gap.
  • Your donation supports programs such as Family Shabbat, Shabbat Dinners, Religious School, Music Program, and our Library.
  • Your donation enables us to “Connect. Create. Belong!” with our social and learning Neighborhoods.
  • Postage, printing, and equipment costs account for more than $26,000 each year.
  • Gas, electricity, and water amount to more than $34,000 each year.
  • Grounds maintenance and snow removal amount to more than $21,000 each year.
  • Temple insurance alone is $18,000 each year.

Thank you for your generosity in choosing to be part of our Annual Appeal!
