5782 One Ask, One Time

In less than two months, we will gather together as a community to welcome the New Year of 5782. This past year has challenged us all, but Congregation Tiferet Israel remains strong, and is poised to grow even stronger. CTI, under the inspired leadership of Rabbi Dan Millner, is the place for Modern Orthodoxy in Austin, and with the initiation of our strategic plan for programming and educational opportunities, there is an excellent prospect for continued growth. 

Empowering us to reach this point has been, and continues to be, the generous financial support from our community and beyond. As in previous years, more than 30% of our operating budget will be met through fundraising, which will enable CTI to function and to meet our growth in a position of strength. 

We want to thank you for your past support and to present an opportunity to continue that support in a simple and comprehensive way. Our giving program, One Ask, One Time, lets you make a one-time decision about how you want to support the various fundraising opportunities that occur throughout the calendar year. This means that you won’t be asked repeatedly to give and won’t need to make multiple giving decisions. (At least, it would have been just one time if Rosh Hashana wasn’t so early this year!) Additionally, the total amount can be given in a single payment, or broken up into several payments.

With this pledge Drive, we give every member a chance to decide upfront what fundraising activities they will support, and at what level, throughout the coming year.  If you want to take advantage of this, please complete the form below.

If you are a member of Tiferet Israel, many of the fields below will be prefilled with your information if you login first.  You can login using the Login button in the upper right corner of this page.
