Giving To TCS

TCS is grateful to receive donations to any of our funds and in honor or in memory of someone. All money raised is directed to the many programs and offerings that add depth and dimension to our congregational life, of which we are so proud.

Our Synagogue offers a General Fund that supports our general operating budget, and a variety of targeted funds allowing you to designate your contributions to a specific area. Together, we can continue to maintain and build our exceptional variety of daily and special event programs, create innovative new projects and initiatives, and plan for tomorrow so that generations to come may experience all that TCS has to offer.

**Please Note:  we are moving to a new computer system.  During the transition, please e-mail Lynn Pokorny at TCS for assistance with donations.

Synagogue Funds & Contribution Form

Types of Funds

  • General Fund: Donations to the General Fund assist in the operation and maintenance of the synagogue.
  • Building Fund: This fund is used for the general repair, maintenance and upkeep of the Synagogue building and its equipment.
  • Program Fund: This Fund helps defray the cost (including advertising and promotion) of all of the synagogue’s programming.
  • Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund: Donations to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund are used by the Rabbi for charitable purposes consistent with the synagogue’s tax exempt purposes, to assist individual, educational and communal needs that may be necessary to be met in a confidential manner, or those whose needs would bring a benefit unable to be met through other means.

Celebratory/Memorial Plaques and Dedication of Ritual Items

  • Joyous moments: Anniversaries, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, engagements, etc. may be commemorated by purchasing a plaque on our Simcha Wall located in the rotunda.
  • Memorial Plaques
  • Prayer Books Bibles/Chumashim: Both celebrations and memorial dedications are customarily marked by donating Prayer Books and Chumashim.

If you are interested in dedicating another ritual object – such as a Torah mantel, silver breastplate, Torah Scroll, or any other large item or piece of equipment to mark a major moment of celebration or loss of a loved one – please be in touch with our office for an updated list of items we are in need of.

Multiple Ways To Donate

**Please Note:  we are moving to a new computer system.  During the transition, please e-mail Lynn Pokorny at TCS for assistance with donations.

You can make your donation online through your TCS Online account  or you may also, of course, mail a check at any time. Please include your current phone number with the check in case there is a need to contact you. 

Many thanks for your generous support of our beloved synagogue!
