VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT

We are proud to be a congregation in which members give feely and from the heart. Knowing that our members would ask for guidance on how to determine their annual financial commitment, we thought it best to show several examples of commitment levels, both here and below:

The total expense budget divided by the number of adults is $4,056 for a 2-adult household, ($2,028 per adult). Receiving this amount would allow us to break even for our 2019/2020 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.

We are introducing our Haverim Society with the hope that members will contribute at a higher level than they did in the past year. All members that contribute at least 10% more than they did last year will be recognized as being part of our Haverim Society. 

You will be kept informed of our financial contribution progress throughout the year. This is the inaugural 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 WILL BE KEPT COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL

Religious School Tuition and Fees, Building Fund and B’nai Mitzvah Fees will remain separate obligations.

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

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, or $1,960.
If you have fulfilled your building fund commitment at Shir Hadash and/or another congregation, we will adjust your account appropriately after we receive written documentation from that synagogue.

If you choose to pay your Building Fund commitment all at once, you receive 20% the total of $2450.


Religious School Tuition
 
Do you need to pay tuition for a student(s) attending religious school? This includes students attending Havayah and in the Madrichim program. 

Your student(s) will be registered for the 2019-2020 school year when:

1) You renew your synagogue membership for the 2019-2020 fiscal year with the required payment information.

2) You submit the School Registration Form.

3) You are confirmed as being in good financial standing (i.e. current in your financial obligations) with the synagogue. This includes any outstanding balances for the 2018-2019 fiscal year
