Kehilat Hadar relies on your contributions to maintain its financial stability. All of the money you donate will be used to pay for our operating costs and programming. The more we’re able to raise, the more frequently we’ll be able to meet. Our need is real, and your donation will have a direct impact on our ability to continue providing year-round high quality davening and programming.
We need to raise $135,000* to cover our annual operating budget for the coming year. The largest portion of those funds goes toward rent and other costs for Shabbat morning services, which is $1,640 per week.
We ask that community members who regularly attend KH services and programs donate $390 per person (or $250 for full-time students). Donating at this level is one way to qualify for voting membership - please indicate your interest in membership below.
We request a minimum donation of $11 per month ($130 for the year). Donations of any size are greatly appreciated, and all donations are fully tax deductible.
You can make a one-time donation via check or credit card, or you can set up a recurring payment on a monthly basis. Consider the following:
*Our annual Shavuot Retreat is not included in our operating budget as we structure it to pay for itself through registration fees.
Everyone who participates in our activities is considered a community member and is welcome to attend all our programs. One may become a voting member for the next calendar year by making a donation at the recommended level or by volunteering at least five times during the year. See Membership for more details. Voting members are entitled to vote on matters requiring membership votes, including to elect members of the Board, and are eligible to join the Board. Voting members are also eligible for preferential pricing for our Annual Shavuot retreat.
Members must be 16 years or older on January 1 of next year.
Please provide information about the person you would like to honor. We will get in touch with the honoree to let them know they have been honored.
