Donating to the House of Netjer
All free-will donations to the House of Netjer Kemetic Orthodox Temple are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Donations of any amount are always welcome. Unless specifically earmarked, donations are applied to the areas of our greatest needs. Donations are used to fund our charitable and religious activities as outlined below.
Shomu Mailing List
As thanks for donating $5 or more to the House of Netjer, you may ask to be added to our Shomu Mailing List. There you will receive daily calendar emails with materials from the Ancient Egyptian Daybook as well as periodic hymns, prayers, and other tidbits provided by Hemet (AUS). If you have donated at least $5 or more in this calendar year and would like to join the mailing list, please contact us and ask to be added.
How our donations are used
The first $500 we receive in donations every month goes toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses. Donations for general expenses go toward House of Netjer overhead including bank accounts, domain maintenance, server space, chat rooms, software, etc. Minor Tawy House expenses include lawn service fees and other small costs as we await the sale of Tawy House (the gas and water are currently shut off at Tawy, and the electric bills are being covered by a stock donation).
Ministerial Services Contract
The next $1,000.00 goes towards our Nisut’s salary. The founder of Kemetic Orthodoxy and our religious leader, Rev. Dr. Tamara Siuda, is supported by donations that we receive after the General House of Netjer expenses are covered. This satisfies the obligation to the Ministerial Services Contract, which supports her to work three 8 hour days per week, and compensates her for her services. These tasks include, but are not limited to, counseling, teaching (spiritual and historical), rituals (lead them as well as translate ancient rituals), etc.
Rollover Fund (savings)
Anything over and above the total of the first $1,500.00 will go to a Rollover Fund, which helps us cover shortfalls on months when donations fall below our goal.
Any donation, however large or small, is welcome! Nonprofit organizations, and especially religious organizations, depend entirely on the generosity of members and friends to survive. We give thanks for all the support we have received from individuals and corporations in the past, and look forward to thanking you for more support of our events and offerings in the future. As it is said in the ancient tongue, Dua-Netjer enten – we thank Netjer for you!
