Ways to Give

Make a Donation

The generosity of our community provides the fuel for Temple Beth El to fulfill our vision, creating and sustaining a vibrant, inclusive, and engaged community.

Your contributions ensure that our congregation will thrive now and in the future. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your giving objectives and goals and how Temple Beth El fits into your plans. Please contact Stefanie Kushner, executive director, at 608-238-3123 or to discuss opportunities for giving.

Annual membership contributions are our primary means of support. Nearly 70% of the operating budget comes from TBE members who understand the importance of providing the much-needed funding that allows us to meet the spiritual, educational, and social needs of the community.

Tribute gifts provide the opportunity to honor, commemorate, or recognize your family or friends with a donation to Temple Beth El. For a minimum contribution of $18, a card will be sent to the honoree. Contributions can be used for our greatest needs or designated for specific programs or as a sustaining gift to one of our endowment funds.

Simcha plaques are a lovely way to honor a happy occasion. Displayed near the sanctuary, the plaques are a visible marker for the community to celebrate special moments with each other. Custom simcha plaques can be purchased for a contribution of $180.

Annual sponsorships provide opportunities for businesses to share their good name and let the community know that you care about Temple Beth El. Read about our sponsorship options. 

Designated gifts can be made by individuals who are passionate about a specific project or program. TBE will ensure that your gift will be used for the specified purpose.

Planned gifts, for those that declare their intention of providing for TBE in their estate plans, are recognized with membership in the Dorot Society.
