I’ll cut straight to the point:
Does anyone here in the Coffee-Room know who (and how) I could contact for financial donations needed by my shul?
I am a member of a shul in Ramat Beit Shemesh A. Just a regular guy who davens and learns there, I’m not a gabbai or askan or anything – just a shul goer who cares and wants to help.
The shul is awesome in many ways, but is in desperate need of a new air-conditioning system. I’m not trying to give a sob story here, but suffice it to say it requires a major overhaul which would probably cost around $100k to do it properly. (It needs about $300k for all the remaining work to, but the air-conditioning is more pressing.)
If anyone has tips or advice on who I could contact, or how to go about it, then please reply to me here (or am I allowed to give a personal email address here?), and I am happy to discuss, or pass you on to the actual gabbaim.
Thanks.May 1, 2022 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #2081507ujmParticipant
The Baalei Tzedaka who come from Eretz Yisroel to America (and other countries) several times a year (Purim season, around Yomim Tovim, etc.) to collect for various mosdos or other worthy causes know the addresses and numbers of most of the gvirim in New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles and other locales. Try speaking to a few of them.May 1, 2022 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #2081520Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
How big is the shul that would need $100k for new ac? Would it have 100+ people there? Can you all have a 5 year loan for this ac and pay 200 per year each? Also maybe some of the people in the shul are in construction business and can offer a discount for the jobMay 1, 2022 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #2081517commonsaychelParticipant
Unless you or members of your shul have a personal connection to the givir, you are wasting your time at best you will walk away with a $18 check, if you are really lucky and he is in a good mood he will give you a $100 check. Why don’t you network in RBS? enough people there with deep pocketsMay 3, 2022 8:35 am at 8:35 am #2082199meshuga1Participant

My tip for gvirim is to give lots and lots of Tzedaka to purchase yourself a seat in Olam Habah.May 3, 2022 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #2082436n0mesorahParticipant
