Macy’s Fundraiser

We are raising funds for TEMV as part of the Macy’s Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge! Since 2006, Macy’s Shop For A Cause event has partnered with schools and non-profit organizations nationwide to raise more than $47 million for their ongoing charitable efforts. This year, they are offering $300,000 in prize money for local charities and not-for-profits across the country.

Any organization that gets at least 20 unique donations of $5 or more this week will be entered to win $2,500. Can we do it?

TEMV has a critical need to raise funds to stay vibrant and growing! Please donate to TEMV through this link to have your contribution count.

The Shop for a Cause campaign will run through Wednesday, August 9th.

As a thank you, everyone who donates $5 or more will receive an exclusive savings pass to shop at Macy’s during the annual Shop for a Cause event, August 10th – August 13th. Every donation large and small is important to our temple!
