At the Congregation’s Annual Meeting on June 20th, the Campaign Co-chairs announced that the Chisuk Emuna Capital Campaign has surpassed the $2 million mark, an important milestone in moving toward securing funds to make possible our long awaited new home.
This amount, which grows daily, even increased to $2,038,000 by the end of the meeting, and comprises gifts from 80 congregants at an average of over $22,620 per congregant. These gifts are payable over as many as 5 years. This amount also includes more than $150,000 in varied gifts received since the fire from friends of the congregation that range from $5 and up. This amount also includes the first gift received as a result of the Campaign Committee’s effort to reach out to various local Foundations for financial support.
The Campaign Committee’s next goal is to reach $2.5 million by October 1, 2011, when the High Holidays start. This goal will be obtained mostly from continued visits to congregants.
Also discussed at the Annual Meeting were efforts to reach the $3.5 million mark, including a Young Adult initiative that focuses on gifts from current and former congregants between the ages of 18 and 30 years old. Stay tuned!
For more information about the campaign, please contact Stan Schneider at 657-0656, or email@example.com, or Joel Cheskis at 232-2707, or Cheskis@aol.com. The campaign team hopes to reach out to every congregant to give everyone a personal “tour” of the plans for the new building.
Thank you for your support of “The Fire Within Us Campaign” for Chisuk Emuna Congregation.
