Giving to SAMS

You won’t be surprised that we are always looking for donations: for our building fund, for the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, for particular projects and for the many local and international Charities We Support.

Members and their families give to SAMS for many reasons. If you would like to donate to honour a special occasion or in memory of a loved one, please get in touch. We would be pleased to help make your donation a meaningful one.

Make a donation or to set up your membership fees donation online or call us or write to us at the SAMS office. Thanks very much for supporting SAMS!

Easyfundraising: We now have 95 members enrolled with Easyfundraising. We have used the first £2000 raised for decorating the shul building and are now raising money to help buy new chairs. Our Easyfundraising donations, ie. our linked online purchases, have already raised £600 towards the cost of new chairs! If you have not already done so, please go to to enrol and choose St Albans Masorti Synagogue as your charity.

AmazonSmile: AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support SAMS every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to SAMS

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?

Remember to use Amazon Smile when making Amazon purchases. Just select  St Albans Masorti Synagogue as your chosen charity. You cannot use Amazon Smile with the Amazon App. However, the good news is that you can set up a shortcut to the Amazon Smile website which gives a near identical experience to the app. It’s very quick and easy to do. If you have the Amazon App installed you should remove it.

Match Funding: Are you an employee of a major corporation? If so, please check and see if your company offers charitable match funding

Some companies will match your donations to charities, or even match the funds raised during an event where you have helped.

Oi vey! Something from the Treasurer you actually might like … a new video we have put together that our Treasurer thought you would be interested in watching – something that could make both you and SAMS happy. Enjoy watching it.
