How does the Chai Club work?

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!

Benefits of The Chai Cliub

  • Your donation is charged to your credit or debit card on the same day each month that you initially set up your gift.
  • You will receive a tax letter every January.
  • Your official membership in JVP is renewed indefinitely (unless you opt-out).

 

How do I update or make changes to my Chai Club gift?

There are a few different ways you can increase, decrease, or cancel your monthly donation, or change your payment information:

  • Call our Oakland office at (510) 465-1777 and ask for Liz Ingenthron.
  • Email Audrey Bruner at audrey@jvp.org.
  • To increase your donation, you can fill out the above form on this page.

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!

 

Why do I still get fundraising and membership appeals? I thought I was a Sustaining Member.

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.

 

I just pledged to give monthly. When will my card be charged?

Your first monthly gift will be charged 1-2 business days after you have made your pledge.

 

Is there a place to log on to change my payment information for my monthly donations?

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 audrey@jvp.org 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.

 

Will my gifts be matched during matching campaigns?

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!)

 

Is my gift to JVP tax-deductible?

Yes. Your gift your gift to JVP is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

 

Can I give a monthly gift to a local JVP chapter?

Yes! All our chapter donation pages have monthly functions set up – if you need help finding that specific page, email us at audrey@jvp.org.
