New Member Shared Sacred Partnership Commitment 2022-23

Welcome to BJBE! We are so glad you are joining our dynamic, welcoming community.

Below is the online form to make your annual Shared Sacred Partnership commitment at a level that is meaningful, that is affordable, and that will support BJBE’s needs.

Commitments from our members are critical to fulfilling our mission and supporting our five core values.  We all belong at BJBE.  We all have a stake in BJBE’s future.  We are all BJBE Partners.  We are counting on every household to consider a meaningful commitment to our Shared Sacred Partnership.

In gratitude for your exemplary support, Partners who commit at the $3,600 level and above will be recognized in the following categories unless anonymity is requested.

 SSP INFORMATION

BJBE’s Shared Sacred Partnership (SSP) is an invitation to join a community committed to relationship building, worship, learning, social action, meaning and purpose. SSP levels provide the opportunity to self-direct contributions and to create a stronger sense of ownership in BJBE’s well-being. Members are asked to consider an annual commitment that is meaningful, affordable, and allows BJBE to remain fiscally sound. Whether BJBE has been your spiritual home for years, or you are new to our community, we look forward to sharing our warm, dynamic, engaged congregation with you.

BJBE is pleased to provide multiple commitment options for our community, to reflect each household’s ability and our need to sustain the community. If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Director, Chime Costello, at ccostello@bjbe.org or 847.940.7575.

The actual cost of sustaining our synagogue is approximately $4,600 per household. The Sustainer level enables us to cover our costs, while commitments above this level are an investment in BJBE and future generations.

I will contact Larisa (Lrozman@bjbe.org) to learn how to use this option.

You may wish to make your commitment with stock or mutual funds which have appreciated (and which you have held onto for more than one year). You will receive a full charitable deduction for your gift, and also bypass the capital gains tax.
I will contact Larisa (Lrozman@bjbe.org) to learn how to use this option.

An IRA charitable contribution allows you to make a tax-free gift from your individual retirement account (IRA). Each year, individuals 72 years of age or older must take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from their IRAs. Typically, that distribution is taxed. If you meet the age requirement and are in a position to make a gift, you may transfer money directly from your IRA to Congregation BJBE 100% income tax-free. The maximum amount that can be transferred and excluded from your taxable income under this law is $100,000 annually. Note there is no charitable deduction for the gift but, the amount transferred can be counted toward your RMD.
This electronic signature shall be considered as an original signature for all purposes.
