Under what conditions, if any, would you recommend that a synagogue do a more complete engineering study (presumably you were referring to a Facilities Condition Assessment), rather than a reserve study?

Any recommendations for how reserve funds should be invested? Since some expenditures will be many years off, it doesn't seem wise to keep it all in cash.

I agree — excellent information

Looking at a 30 year or longer time frame requires planning with present value dollars (2022) over a long planning period. Overly cautious investment has the same problem for this plan as an overly cautious IRA/401K is for an individual investor for retirement.

Grants require significant energy and time to apply for and for more to work and report through. Make sure you have people who are actually qualified and willing to work on these. Have a FEMA Homeland Security and it is difficult.Grant and
