Your tax-deductible donation directly affects the life of the congregation through worship, learning, and community. There are many ways you can show your support for Kol Ami. You can choose to donate to one of our funds listed below, for an Honor, a Yarhzeit (in memory of a loved one), or special event or through our many fundraisers.
As always we are grateful for your support in creating a strong foundation for our community!
A heartfelt thank you – Todah Rabah!
