Schechter Annual Campaign

What is the Schechter Annual Campaign?
Our Schechter Annual Campaign provides an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the education and lives of our students. Funds support our day-to-day operating expenses, including our outstanding educational programs, tuition assistance, and security improvements.

How does my tax-deductible gift make a difference?
Your gift helps secure the resources needed to maintain our world-class general and Judaic academic curriculum, and to continue developing programs that reflect our state-of-the-art educational pedagogy, cutting-edge technology, and the dynamic demands of a changing world. Funds raised help to improve and expand student programming, recruit and develop top educators, maintain and improve our facilities, provide financial aid to qualifying families and keep tuition increases to a minimum.

Why should I support the Schechter Annual Campaign?
Schechter has a rich history of laying the educational and moral foundation on which our children grow into confident, intellectually inquisitive, and compassionate adults who contribute to the Jewish and global community. Schechter’s inquiry-based, experiential approach and Jewish valued-based education in all curricular areas differentiate our school from others. As an IB World School, Schechter continually strives to incorporate innovative programs and tools, including: an inter-disciplinary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) curriculum, Singapore Math, a research-grade microscopy lab, and an organic teaching garden.

How is my gift recognized?
Gifts of $100 and above are appreciated and are recognized in our digital ad journal. Gifts of $1,000 and above are recognized on our annual donor wall.

The Ma’ayan Society recognizes individuals who give at our most generous levels. These include all donors who give $3,600 and above annually.

What is the correlation between the Community Celebration and Schechter Annual Campaign?
Our Schechter Annual Community Celebration is an opportunity for our community to celebrate the accomplishments of our year and pay tribute to our honorees. Donations of over $3,600 to the annual campaign include a full page journal ad and membership into our Ma’ayan Giving Society. Outright gifts of $750 and above (not including ticket purchases) entitle you to a partial journal ad.
