The TBE Endowment Foundation is a permanent separate nonprofit corporation created in 1959 for the sole purpose of providing financial support for Temple Beth El. This support allows the Temple to provide religious school scholarships to children in need, to maintain and improve the building and grounds, to offer varied programs and to cover a substantial portion of operating expenses, all of which helps keep dues reasonable. The Foundation Board of Directors consists of twelve Temple Beth El congregants and the Temple president. The membership consists of the Temple Beth El Board of Directors.
Our congregation is a vibrant and healthy conservative Jewish community. As we are blessed with new members we find there is growth at both ends of our demographic spectrum. The increase in the number of seniors and young couples and families presents a shift that challenges us to find a stable revenue source to meet the needs of all members. As not-for-profit organizations across the country have concluded, an endowment foundation is the best, in fact the only way, to meet those needs today and to insure they are met in the future. Thus, your gift to the Foundation becomes part of a lasting legacy, helping to insure that TBE will have the means to provide meaningful programs and services to future generations.
Historically, our Foundation has grown through accumulation of donations both large and small. As a result, it has been able to provide an annual contribution to TBE derived from recurrent earnings. Consequently, a gift to the Endowment Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving.
Your gift to the Foundation can be accomplished in one of a number of ways:
