Giving Tuesday

Click here for six of the many ways that you can support your Temple on Giving Tuesday

While your family is enjoying this time of giving thanks and giving gifts, consider a donation to Main Line Reform Temple Beth Elohim. #GivingTuesday is TODAY, Tuesday, November 30!

Your vital support sustains the worship, educational programming, and community-building activities that enable our temple family to thrive. Below are some of the many ways to show your support:

Tzedakah Tuesday!

Tuesday, November 30 at 7:00 pm in person and on Zoom
Let’s count three nights of Chanukah and all our blessings together at 7:00 pm tonight, and drop off donations of boys clothing (especially sizes 0-8) for the Mitzvah Circle Foundation.

Annual Fund

Yearly membership contributions only meet about 50% of our Temple budget. Tuition for ECE and Religious School covers but a portion of the true costs of providing the high-quality education and care that our children deserve. Your contributions to the MLRT Annual Fund will ensure that we have the financial resources to invest in our core missions of study, worship, and instilling a cooperative and collaborative spirit in our synagogue.

Year End Donations

The COVID Relief Act (the “Act”) passed by Congress and signed by the President on December 27, 2020 extended the unlimited charitable contribution for cash gifts to most public charities through the end of 2021. This creates an important once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move
substantial amounts from retirement plans to charity beyond the $100,000 qualified charitable rollover already allowed to IRA owners without adverse income tax consequences.

Because of the unlimited charitable deduction allowed for cash gifts to most public charities this year, a taxpayer who has reached age 59½ can in effect make a tax-free “quasi-rollover” of any amount to charity in 2021 by making a taxable withdrawal from an IRA or other retirement plan that will be included in income, giving the cash to a public charity, and offsetting the income completely by the unlimited charitable deduction,
regardless of the amount.

For more information, please contact Charles F. Forer or Eric L. Settle.
