Endowment Funds

Generous donors have donated goal-directed funds to further the vision and goals of our congregation in a sustained way. These funds are managed and invested by an Endowment Committee of five Reyim member trustees. Conditions established at the time of initial donations allow the use of investment income and, in some cases, a fraction of the principal, to support the stated goals of the donors.

One of the funds is a General Endowment, the income from which can be either saved for future needs or used for any purpose designated by the Board of Directors.

The others are Restricted Funds, directed to goals established by the donors. The investment income is used to enhance educational, spiritual, charitable and leadership development activities of the congregation.

Please consider supporting our congregation and contribute to these funds so both their principal and generated income can grow.
