Campaign 36

What Is Campaign 36?

The leaders of the Campaign Team are proud and excited to be sharing this update. Proud of our vibrant, forward-thinking community. Excited to be part of the team eliminating the mortgage we have had since the 1980s. Thanks to the project approved by the Board of Directors during Irv Olender’s presidency, we are three-plus years into a campaign to pay off the $1.8 million mortgage and interest that incurs. While it is hard to wax poetic about something as mundane as a mortgage, we’re thrilled to say that, in two-and-a-half years’ time, we have:

• Reached out to more than 180 families who have said, “yes, count me in.”

• Seen our principal balance drop to $630,000 as of 7/23/19, vs. $1.5 million on 10/31/17.

• Seen our goal of being debt free by 2020 becoming a reality.

The Vision

Imagine! No fundraising item in our budget for operational expenses.

Imagine! Being debt free.

Imagine! Raising funds for a purpose vs. supporting interest payments.

Imagine! Having more freedom to focus on enriching our programs and our community.

Our outreach continues. We are counting on your support. Stuart Katzman, Gretchen Sand Preville, Dawn Gringorten, Trista Bernstein, Naomi Parker, Joy Spodick, Eric Stone, and Rabbi Melanie Aron are leading this campaign, with the commitment of the Board and the professional staff. We are counting on you to talk with us. Together, we can make the mortgage a piece of history.
