Ways and Means is about fundraising to support programs at Old York Road Temple – Beth Am. We do this through hosting special events and programs that bring the members of our community together. Many events also have sponsorship opportunities for individuals and businesses. In the past few years we have hosted events such as Monte Carlo Night, Get the Leavened Out 5k Run/Walk, Beth Am Stars (which honored congregants for their volunteer work in the greater community) and many restaurant night fundraisers. We work with everyone to make sure the events are fun as well as inclusive.
Additionally, we offer gift cards to help raise funds at no additional cost to anyone. The Gift Card Program supports Beth Am while giving you access to gift cards to use at places you already shop. Just let us know which gift cards you want. Cards are available for a wide variety of retailers including grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, department stores, even Amazon and iTunes! Cards ordered by Sunday are generally available by Wednesday, with easy payment by check or cash. Each retailer then donates a percentage of the value of the card to the Beth Am, and the purchaser receives full value of the card. It’s a win-win for everyone. Contact the office at 215-886-8000 to place an order.
Another way that Ways and Means supports Beth Am is by selling advertising in the Temple Topics newsletter. Published every other month, Temple Topics brings the news and updates from around Beth Am to our congregants. Various size ads, from business card to full page, are available. What a great way to get additional exposure for a local business!”
