The Jewish Voice for Peace Chai Club is home to over 1,100 donors who have committed to support our work month after month – with gifts ranging from $5 to $1,000.
Join the Chai Club with a monthly contribution to JVP. Thank you so much for your support from all of us at Jewish Voice for Peace.
To make changes to your monthly gift, please contact Audrey Bruner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chai Club is for monthly donors at Jewish Voice for Peace. We have over 1,100 Chai Club members, who are giving a total of more than $26,000 each month in increments ranging from $5 all the way up to $1,000.
When you become a Monthly Sustainer, your donation is ongoing until you say otherwise. Your credit or debit card will automatically be billed each month. You’ll save time, money, and resources!
There are a few different ways you can increase, decrease, or cancel your monthly donation, or change your payment information:
We’re working on new systems to make it easier to increase/decrease our donation or change your credit card – but it turns our most processors make this pretty difficult (at least in part, we think, to safeguard your privacy). So please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Firstly, it might be that we have an error in how we have your information filed – so please don’t hesitate to ask us to fix it! It’s often true that people end up with multiple emails on file with us or something else easy to resolve.
But we also ask for money frequently because we…well, we need it! And over the years we’ve learned that if we don’t ask, the answer is no. But we’re also human, we get it. So believe it or not we do save you from a bunch of our direct fundraising appeals. Often, though, when we’re asking for funds for a specific project or campaign moment we’ll include you, in part in the hope that you’ll consider an special one-time gift to that project, and in part because a lot of our updates about the work have fundraising asks integrated with them – so we’re also sending them legitimately as political updates.
We also pledge (warn?) that we will ask you specifically about increasing your monthly amount once a year. We know not everyone can do that – but we also know many of us can. Our assumption is that honest and open communication prevails both directions in the Chai Club – so if you can’t stretch you’re giving further, you’ll say.
Your first monthly gift will be charged 1-2 business days after you have made your pledge.
Unfortunately, not as easily as there should be (and one day sooner than later, will be!). But again, these systems, even at the fancier end of non-profit gift processing, are surprisingly complex. So for now, please email email@example.com if you have a specific change you want to make, call (510) 465-1777 if it’s urgent, or if you do want to increase your gift, do it here.
It depends! Some donors when they put up a match say every gift in a time period qualify, other times it’s only new gifts that count. Often with monthly gifts a donor will also match the entire first year of monthly donations – an extra useful incentive, of course. We’ll do our best to let you know clearly each time. (And if you are interested in putting up a gift to be matched, please let us know that too!)
