Annual Appeal

Annual Fund

Help keep our community vital and strong 

Congregation Or Atid's Annual Fund is a key component to building our community and ensuring inclusiveness and support for each and every congregant.  It has also helped us achieve the excellence provided by our rabbi, religious school and in our innovative programming. 

Sustaining Or Atid takes all of us

It requires our contributions of time, effort, and financial support. Our finances support our home, and all of what we do throughout the year.  Our Annual Fund keeps the lights on.  It pays for our Rabbi and our teachers.  It pays for grass cutting in the summer and snowplowing in the winter.  It pays for Kiddush and community events.  It pays for the small repairs and maintenance that arise throughout the year.  In other words, the Annual Fund makes what we do at Or Atid possible.  It is a true congregation-wide effort to insure the health and vitality of our synagogue for years to come.

There are many ways to make your donation

Every donation, regardless of amount, is critical to our success. Your contribution matters. You can make your donation by check (send to Or Atid at PO Box 38, Wayland, MA 01778), or credit card (just click the "Donate" button below).  You can also email Laura Blumberg for more information, or to make your pledge. A stock donation may also work for you (some companies will match donations, thereby increasing your gift!).

You can now make your donation by Credit Card PayPal donate button

Simply click on the "Donate" button and make your credit card donation. Please note: Donations made using a credit card reduce the amount received by Or Atid by 2.2%, as a credit card processing fee is incurred.
