Kehillah Tribute Cards
You can commemorate a milestone in the life of someone close to you, or remember a loved one, while you help our community by making a contribution in their name. Kehillah Tribute Cards showcase our beautiful campus, and each card conveys your special message.
It may be advantageous for you to support Kehillah through a gift of appreciated securities. Not only is the full fair-market value of the security as of the date of the gift generally tax deductible, but you may avoid all capital gains taxes.
There are many ways for you to support Kehillah in your lifetime as well as leave a legacy for future generations. Planned gifts include charitable gift annuities, endowment funds, and will and estate planning.
Thinking about selling your car, boat, motorcycle, truck or other vehicle? Donate it to Kehillah instead and save the hassle of selling, handling the DMV paperwork, and getting a smog certificate. All vehicle donations are handled through an organization called Charitable Auto Resources (CARS). All you need is a clear title, and they will take care of the rest, including pick-up, at no cost to you. Once your vehicle has been sold, you'll be sent a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to Kehillah Jewish High School in your name.
Click here for all the information needed to make the donation. You receive all the necessary paperwork for a tax deduction from CARS. See the flyer for more information.
eScrip is an easy way to support Kehillah at no cost to you! Simply register your Safeway card and/or debit and credit cards for use in the program, then shop at participating merchants. Kehillah will earn between 2-10% of your purchases. Click here to register. Kehillah's ID number is 150400650.

Shopping For a Change
Did you know that you can help Kehillah raise money by shopping for beautiful handmade jewelry, apparel, home decor and accessories from around the world? But wait, you are not only supporting Kehillah, you are also helping these talented artists and their communities.
Working abroad with underdeveloped nations, the Shopping for a Change® business model empowers talented artisans and their impoverished communities, with means to transform their standards of living in economically sustainable ways.
Shopping for a Change® assists in developing their industries, preserving local handicraft traditions, and educating them about competing in the world marketplace. They aid in bringing their handcrafted products to consumers in the United States and other relatively wealthy nations.
Fifty percent of the net proceeds, from sales of artisanal handicrafts through thier website, will be used to fund community improvement projects and grants abroad. The other fifty percent of the net sales proceeds will benefit Kehillah Jewish High School. The first community improvement project by Shopping for a Change® brought clean water to over 400 people in Swaziland, Africa, who had never before experienced this basic commodity-something here we tend to take for granted. The project for 2012 is helping to fund a teacher for a year in a Kenyan school where some of their artisans' children attend.
Shopping for a Change® has a booth at the Ultimate Women's Expo October 6th & 7th, 2012 at the San Mateo Expo. Shop at their booth, tell them you want to support Kehillah, and we'll benefit from your purchase.
