The Temple Emanu-El Endowment Fund was established principally to provide for the long-term physical growth and enhancement of our Temple and grounds, thus ensuring our ability to accommodate the growth of our congregation while remaining a vibrant center of faith.

 Endowment funds like ours are effectively savings accounts for the Temple.  The earnings from our permanent endowment fund can be used to support our daily operations, provide special programs and services, or serve as emergency funds.  Because our endowment is permanent, it will ensure that future generations will have access to the same quality programs and services that we provide today at Temple Emanu-El.  Your support will help us to ensure that we will be able to meet the needs of our congregation for many years to come.

 There are several ways to support the Temple through the Endowment Fund.  These include Planned Giving.  Planned Giving can be arranged through your Will, your retirement account, through real property or other assets you may have accumulated over time.  Insurance policies, bequests, and annuities are other forms of Planned Giving.


Co-Chairperson, Mark Sharff
