As we shared at the annual Membership Meeting, we are launching a new system in which we are asking members to establish an annual membership pledge for how much you will give over the next year. Annual pledges can still be structured as a monthly or an annual gift, but the change is that we are asking all members to make this pledge and renew your membership at the May membership meeting or shortly thereafter. If you have previously made your membership contribution annually, you have likely received a renewal reminder on the anniversary of your join date in the past. Going forward, we ask that you renew in May, regardless of what month you originally joined NSP.
Aligning our membership renewal process with the fiscal year will allow us to make more accurate budget projections. Consolidating the renewal process will also make it easier for members to know their current membership status, and allow us to ensure that member contact information is up-to-date. Lastly, we are working to ensure that all of our contributions are being entered into our new membership database platform, Breeze, so that we can make our systems more efficient and easy to use.
As always, we encourage each member household to make a pledge that is meaningful, significant, and affordable to you. Our doors are open to everyone, whether you give $0 or $10,000 per year. In line with our ethic to build a leaderful community, we invite all members to join a team to contribute ideas, talent, and leadership. We also ask all members to fill a few volunteer shifts per season to sustain our Shabbat and community programming. And lastly, we invite members, friends, and family who are able to contribute seed gifts at $10,800, $5,400, $3,600, or $1,800. Any amount contributed is appreciated and makes building this community possible.
1. Make your pledge
2. Update your membership information
As we enter our fourth year, NSP continues to build a spiritually vibrant, radically inclusive, Jewish community that reflects our vision for a world of justice, equity, and liberation. None of this would be possible without the contributions of our members and our friends and families. We are so grateful for your contributions, and look forward to continuing to grow and nurture our community this next year.
