Netivot Shalom depends upon the generosity of the community to continue our efforts. There are a myriad of ways you can donate to Congregation Netivot Shalom. An unrestricted gift commits the use of your donation to the discretion of the Board of Directors, who will apply it where it is needed most. The congregation also maintains a number of special designated funds, which allow you to assure that your gift will go to advance a specific function supported by that fund.
Whether your gift is unrestricted or directed to a designated fund, you also have the option of designating an honoree. Donors often wish to honor another living person with their donation, and allow the congregation to inform the honored person that such gift has been made. It is also customary to honor the memory of one who has passed on, and allow the congregation to inform other survivors of the gift.

Or, click here to make a secure online donation via PayPal, and let us know of any preferences regarding use of the funds and/or honorees in the ‘message’ field.
