WHAT ARE NAMED FUNDS
Temple Beth Sholom is blessed to have so many visionary member families who have graciously decided to establish specific named funds in order to support a certain area of the Temple where they see a particular need. These funds have been launched by our benefactors who have given generously to ensure the success of the fund. These are known as restricted funds and are different than the fundraising for our Legacy Endowment Campaign in that they are for a specific purpose and those who contribute to them after they are established are seeking them out to support a friend or family member’s fund.
WHY SET UP A NAMED FUND
Our philanthropic members have set up these funds listed below for a variety of reasons that strike a personal chord within their hearts. Be it as a means of memorializing or honoring a loved one, commemorating a special event, scholarships, teen trips to Israel, The March of the Living or innovative educational endeavors; the funds are enhanced even further as during the course of each year, often friends and family members of the donors contribute to the growth of each fund, when an opportunity arises for them to make a donation such as for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, anniversary, Yahrzeit, etc.
