Temple Israel Foundation is a 501(c)(3) historical nonprofit organization. We can accept donations of various types (as outline below). Donations to the Temple Israel Foundation are tax deductible in accordance to Federal laws.


We can accept donations in the following way.


Cash, Check, Money Order Donations

  • We accept donations given as cash, check, money order, or other similar paper methods, in person or mailed. If you give your contact information along with a monetary donation, we can send you an acknowledgment letter for your records.


Credit Cards

  • We are not currently set up to take credit/debit cards directly. However, you can still donate using a credit/debit card by using the secure PayPal system. You do not need a PayPal account to donate with PayPal. Please click the button to the right to take you to a secure PayPal page.


PayPal and Electronic Donations

  • PayPal is a very easy system to transfer money from one account to another account. Within your own PayPal account, you can link a checking account and credit cards in order to safely and easily transfer funds from your PayPal account to another's PayPal account. If you would like to donate using PayPal, please use the button to the right. In addition, we can also first send you a PayPal invoice if you would let us know ahead of time.


Donations of Artifacts

  • For donations of artifacts, please first contact us directly or by using the Contact Us form so that we can determine if your potential artifact donation will be appropriate for the museum collection.


Donations of Books for our Library

  • In similar manner as with artifacts, please first contact us directly or by using the Contact Us form so that we can determine if your potential book donation will be appropriate for our library


Donations of Research and Historical Facts

  • While we do not claim to be an exhaustive source of information about Leadville Jews, we do have quite a bit of material already researched. However, we continue our efforts to gain more accuracy as well as fill in gaps in our knowledge base. If you would like to provide facts, research, etc that will help with our mission, please feel free to contact us.



  • Like with any nonprofit, we can use volunteers at the needed time! If you would like to volunteer your time, please contact us so that we can determine how you might be able to help us.
