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, including but not limited to:
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).
Tamara Siuda Salary
The founder of Kemetic Orthodoxy and our religious leader, Tamara Siuda, is supported by donations that we receive after the General House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses are covered. Every $500 that we raise goes toward Tamara working for one 8-hour day per week (i.e., $1,000 = two 8-hour days per week). Our support will enable her to effectively carry out the wide range of tasks that are required of her as the Nisut of Kemetic Orthodoxy. These tasks include, but are not limited to, counseling, teaching (spiritual and historical), rituals (lead them as well as translate ancient rituals), etc.
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!
