The campaign will make possible major renovations to our historic, nearly 100-year-old building and the construction of an 8,700 square-foot addition and provide significant endowment funds.
Beth Am has received pledges that exceed $11 million. With your help, we will meet and exceed our goal. The Campaign for Beth Am continues so we can achieve all three of its aspirations: quasi-endowment of $3 million to support outstanding clergy and meaningful programming, essential renovations to the historic Sperry building, and a small addition to meet the current and future demands of our growing and vibrant community.
To discuss your gift to The Campaign for Beth Am, contact Rachel Weitzner (email@example.com) or call 410-523-2446, and she will schedule a meeting for you with a member of the Campaign Cabinet or Campaign Executive Committee.
