Why Donate

Shomrei Torah depends on the generosity of its members for donations, since income from dues provides less than two thirds of its operating funds. We are committed to providing a range of programs and services to our members and our community, in addition to maintaining the facilities and pay for other financial obligations. We have several major fund-raising opportunities throughout the year, including, Gift Cards or Scrip (Vendor List), High Holy Day Campaign, Calendar, President's Council and Dinner Dance/Ad Journal. In addition to fundraising, various Funds & Donations have been established for special purposes. It takes a lot for a synagogue to operate.

The IRS permits you to deduct from your Federal Income Tax Return, donations made to the synagogue during a calendar year. For contributions under $250, your canceled check would, in most instances, be sufficient evidence of your donation. However, for donations of $250 or more, you need a written receipt to substantiate these larger amounts.

Shomrei Torah will do everything we can to acknowledge your tax-deductible contributions. We do so with individual letters sent at the time we receive many donations and with a special end-of-year account summary of payments you made that we know are considered charitable donations.
