Our goal is to raise at least $6.13 MILLION. A pledge to Beth Emet’s Capital Campaign is an investment that will strengthen our community, advance our mission today and tomorrow, and build a bridge to the next generation.
65% of all funds raised will be allocated to updating our infrastructure, seating, sound systems, technology, and bathrooms,and to renovating our worship, learning, and community spaces in ways that better engage and welcome current and prospectivemembers. The improvements will increase safety, security, and accessibility for everyone in the Beth Emet family.
25% of all funds raised will be used to enhance and grow the Beth Emet endowment. The endowment held in the Beth Emet Foundation provides both a financial security and the means to support the programs and services that are the backbone of our community.
10% of all funds raised will be allocated to a combination of further improving our financial liquidity by providing a seasonal working capital facility and a reduction of existing credit facilities and other Capital Campaign related activities. Beth Emet’s leadership recognizesits responsibility for careful stewardship of all the congregation’s financial resources, as confirmed by a recently completed audit of all synagogue accounts and practices.
By investing in the Capital Campaign, you can make a difference.
Since our founding in 1950, Beth Emet has been a vanguard congregation, making significant and positive impacts on our members’ lives and the Reform Movement, teaching the joy and importance of embracing Jewish values, and serving as a leader and role model on equality, fairness, and other social justice issues. Your pledge to the Capital Campaign will help ensure a strong and thriving Beth Emet continues for us, our children and grandchildren, and future generations. Please join us on this sacred journey.
