Tzedakah – “The charity that is righteousness”
All significant institutions of culture and learning require supplemental operating funds, and our Temple is no exception. Inspiring worship led by devoted clergy; educational programs for tots, children, teens and adults; cultural and social action offerings; and the preservation of our magnificent building, all depend on the support of caring individuals. Honor a special occasion or remember a loved one by making a contribution to one of the funds at Temple Emanuel. Each gift makes possible all that we do today and prepares us for an ever more promising tomorrow.
Please contact Francie Miran, Development Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-388-4013, x335, for more information about these options.

When you donate shares of stock or mutual funds that have appreciated in value since their purchase, you:
Make a generous gift to Temple Emanuel
Receive a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of donation (if you have owned the shares longer than one year)
Avoid the capital gains tax you would incur if you sold the shares instead of donating them
May carry forward any deductions in excess of 30% of your adjusted gross income for up to five additional years.
If you have securities that have decreased in value since you purchased them, consider selling them and making a tax deductible gift of the cash proceeds. You may then be able to deduct the loss from other taxable income. The combined tax benefits of the charitable donation in cash and the capital loss may actually exceed the current value of the investment.
The Live On Society was created to honor and recognize those who remember Temple Emanuel in their estate plans. Through planned gifts such as bequests, life insurance policies, gift annuities, and charitable trusts, your estate gift can help strengthen Temple Emanuel in permanent ways. Some options preserve maximum control over your assets during life, while others may provide powerful tax and financial benefits as part of your philanthropy.
Give with a purpose
Donors who make estate or outright gifts may designate their gift for a specific purpose. Such gifts can be designated to meet a current need or to support an existing endowed fund for the specified purpose.
A donor who wishes to contribute $100,000 or more may establish a Named Endowment Fund and may specify the program or activity that will utilize these funds (may be subject to board approval). Typically, these funds are named in honor of the donor, his or her family, or another individual.
