PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
Many companies offer their employees a matching-gift program. Namely, they will match your donation to the charity of your choice, thereby multiplying the effect of your donation. Check with your employer to see if they have a matching-gift program. If the answer is “yes”, then speak to them about designating Nishmat Am so we can receive a gift from your employer at whatever the match amount is.
This is especially relevant as you think of end-of-year donations. Thanks so much for thinking of Nishmat Am.

THE BENEFIT OF PLANNING AHEAD
Congregation Nishmat Am’s Section at Restland Memorial Park
Regardless of your age or health, the purchase of a cemetery plot is considered a good investment because it allows you to purchase at today’s price with no adjustment in later years for inflation.
Additionally, it spares the family from the anxiety and costs of having to purchase a plot and pay in full under the pressure of time.
Nishmat Am has now established a section at Restland Memorial Park as a commitment and important service to our members and their families. A number of members have purchased plots.
For more information, call the office at 972-618-2200 and we’ll be happy to discuss this and answer any questions you may have.
