Membership dues and contributions to the Annual Fund Drive cover a large part of the Society's operational budget. Our German language school, rental program, and fundraisers cover most of the remaining income. All other programs and events – while important in their diversity to our members, friends and the community at large – provide only limited funds.

Our goal for this year’s Annual Fund Drive is $55,000. We recognize that these are still financially uncertain, and for some, difficult times. We appreciate your continued support, and ask you to consider a contribution at the next higher giving level, as shown below. All contributions are tax-deductible. Some employers, or former employers, will match charitable donations, which allows you to leverage your giving.
