The Chai-Verim or, 18 Per Month Club, is a club for people who would like to support Chaverim regardless of whether or not the donor needs assistance themselves. To join, individuals must donate $18 on a monthly basis for a period of 12 months. Your contributions will allow Chaverim to continue to operate without charging a fee.
If you are a club member and can no longer make the payments, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the email address registered with paypal. This way we can remove you from our automated invoicing system.
There are no fees for regular service. As a non-profit organization, much of our costs are defrayed by donations. We reserve the right to begin charging if we do not receiving enough donations to keep the organization running.
Intentionally falsifying an emergency call will result in heavy fees and penalties as this is a misuse of a system put in place to help people in need.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations made to Chaverim of Baltimore are tax deductible. Meaning, if you donate 100 dollars, you can deduct 100 dollars from the income you pay taxes on. For example: If you donate 100 dollars in a calendar year and your tax rate is 20%, you would be paying 20 dollars less in tax that year.
