Your TBS donation can be directed to our general operating fund, or to a specific fund as described below.
The General Operating Fund is used for the general operation expenses of the synagogue, including events, programs, adult education, special events, and day to day costs of maintaining the shul.
Building Maintenance Fund
The Building Maintenance Fund is used for small and large maintenance needs and repairs for our building. The TBS synagogue is quite large and the building is aging, requiring more large scale repairs such as roof replacement, dry rot repair, plumbing updates, etc. This is one of TBS's greatest needs.
Building Loan Repayment Fund
TBS currently owes several generous members and friends approximately $100,000 for loans taken to cover our mortgage loan when we moved from Broadway to Cunningham. Money donated here is used to pay off those loans toward our goal of paying off our mortgage.
Children's Library Fund
The Children's Library Fund pays for new Jewish themed books for our children to borrow from our library.
The general Library Fund helps to pay for new books and supplies for our synagogue library.
The Religious School Fund is used to provide the supplies, teachers, activities and programs for our children enrolled in religious and hebrew school. These funds are used for the general operating expenses of the Religious School, but not for scholarships.
Religious School Scholarship Fund
The Religious School Scholarship Fund provides much needed and sought after scholarships for our families who would otherwise not be able to provide a Jewish education for their children.
