Critical Needs Fund

The Steering Committee of Welcoming the Stranger, with the generous support of Temple Beth El (TBE), has established a separate, segregated project fund at TBE to allow tax-deductible donations to be made by individuals and foundations who would like to support our work. For now, we have decided to use currently available funds to meet “critical” mentee needs that cannot otherwise be met by existing funding sources. We have established guidelines for making up to $1000 stipends available to your mentees, which can increase if there are sufficient monies available in the Fund. We encourage you to seek a stipend if and when the need arises. Requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fill out this funds request form and see the Guidelines for Disbursements form for more information.

We also urge you to tell your friends, family, and colleagues about this newly created fund and its tax-deductible status. Apart from the very real needs it helps meet, contributing to it can be an effective way for those unable to serve as mentors to nonetheless support the work of Welcoming the Stranger. The Guidelines for Donation Form provides more information. And thank you!
