Reimagining Financial Support for Your 21st Century Congregation
We hear over and over again that current models of synagogue financial
support are not working. Temple leaders are searching for new and
models to restructure their finances and to strengthen their members'
involvement. Financial contributions to temples can be increased by strengthening
within the congregation.
The Reimagining Financial Support for Your 21st Century Congregation Active Learning Network explores practical tools,
resources and networking opportunities to help congregations understand, evaluate and reimagine their financial support which is primarily comprised of
dues, fees and philanthropy. The framework for this ALN is to understand financial support as it directly relates to member engagement. By strengthening personal relationships
within the congregation, we can increase financial contributions to our
temples. Building relationships is central to this equation, refocuses
on the people and how they relate to each other, the congregation and
to their financial obligation.
