Annual Chai Campaign and Pillar Member Recognition Program
Temple Adat Elohim members have several avenues, in addition to their dues, to enhance the life of the community. Pillar membership is one of these. Becoming a Pillar member is your opportunity to provide financial support to Temple Adat Elohim above and beyond your Temple Dues and Fees. Your generosity allows for enhancement to our Temple in ways that the budget does not allow. Pillar members may participate in the listed levels which will be reflected on the annually-updated Chai Annual Campaign Pillar recognition panel. Pillar members are recognized weekly in the Friday Night Announcements and are periodically invited to special social and educational events with other Pillars of the community.
Our Annual Chai Campaign Levels of Giving:
Visionaries: Donations for the fiscal year in excess of $50,000
Guardians: Donations for the fiscal year between $10,000 and $49,999
Benefactors: Donations for the fiscal year between $5,000 and $9,999
Patrons: Donations for the fiscal year between $2,500 and $4,999
Mentors: Donations for the fiscal year between $750 and $2,499
How it works:
To achieve Pillar level, a minimum $750 donation is required in the fiscal year. This is cumulative of unrestricted donations to the temple including activities and events throughout the year such as the Mishloach Manot gift bags and the Paint-A-Tile project. It also includes High Holy Day pledges and any tribute that is made to the Chai General fund, the Mortgage reduction fund or the new Property Reserve fund.
