VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT

We are proud to be a congregation in which members give freely and from the heart. Knowing that our members would like guidance on how to determine their annual financial commitment, we are providing several examples of commitment levels.

The total expense budget divided by the number of adults is $3,230 for a 2-adult household, ($1,615 per adult). Receiving this amount would allow us to break even for our 2021/2022 fiscal year.

Help us by introducing Shir Hadash to friends, relatives and acquaintances. As we add more members, the amount we would need per adult will become less.

You will be kept informed of our financial contribution progress throughout the year. This is the third year of this new voluntary commitment program and we are confident that everyone will give as generously as they can based upon what your head and heart suggest.

Please note: ALL VOLUNTARY COMMITMENTS ARE KEPT COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL

Suggested Levels are for reference only as each member household must decide the level of support that their heart and head tell them is right for them. Please check one or fill in the blank.

If Other, please enter total amount.

BUILDING FUND
Shir Hadash is much more than an organization: It is a congregational home. Just like your home, our facilities need upkeep and maintenance, but this can only be done through the generous support of congregants and members of the community.
In order to preserve our congregational home and keep it secure for future generations, we must keep it on a solid financial basis. Through the expected payment of the building fund, in addition to voluntary commitment, all members of the community help achieve this goal.
A Building Fund commitment of $350 a year for your first seven years of membership is a necessary charge. If you choose to pay your Building Fund commitment all at once, you receive a 20% discount from the total of $2,450, which is a lump sum of $1,960.
If you have fulfilled your building fund commitment at Shir Hadash, that's awesome!  If you fulfilled it at another congregation, we will adjust your account appropriately after we receive written documentation from that synagogue.

Please note the form will not complete if you do not make a selection here.

*If you choose to pay your Building Fund commitment all at once, you receive 20% the total of $2450 for a full payment of $1960.

I would like to make an additional donation to our Building Fund to make sure our repairs and upgrades can be properly executed.

Religious School Tuition
 
Please click yes if you plan to enroll one or more children as religious school students and/or madrichim'ot. Please note that by selecting “Yes” you are guaranteeing your child(ren) an enrollment spot in the 2021-2022 school year.

Your student(s) will be registered for the 2021/2022 school year when:

1) You renew your synagogue membership for the 2021/2022 fiscal year with the required payment information.

2) You submit the School Registration Form.
