Annual Giving Fund (AGF)

Beth Yeshurun Day School’s Annual Giving Fund raises unrestricted funds in support of the school’s operations.

Like all independent schools, we have a great many annual needs that extend beyond the funds raised through tuition and must be accounted for through the Annual Giving campaign. We use that expression “bridge the gap” (between tuition dollars and the full cost of education) over and over again, but truly Annual Giving is much more than a tagline or a brief elevator speech; it is the lifeblood of all independent schools, all of which require a successful annual Campaign. Unlike tuition and other school-related fees, Annual Giving is totally discretionary. We each decide what we can afford and how we can participate. And, remember, participation is the key. Our goal is 100% parental participation. Every gift counts, no matter how large or how small.

So how do we move from “Bridge the Gap” to a better
understanding of Annual Giving?

Let’s look at some of the areas where dollars raised in the campaign assist our school to provide the best educational experience possible.

  • Educating the Educators

    Our outstanding teachers are able to attend educational conferences across the country and then bring state-of- the-art teaching techniques to the classrooms.

  • Counselor

    We employ a professional counselor who works with kids in and out of the classroom and assists in both academic and other individual areas in their personal lives.

  • Learning Specialists

    We retain the services of learning specialists who work with students who benefit from enhanced assignments or additional support to their normal studies.

  • Jewish Foundation

    We not only teach Hebrew and Judaic studies, but plan programs to provide students with an important foundation in Judaism and a love for Jewish teachings.

  • Technology

    We monitor technological advancements to ensure that our school keeps up with and accesses all the latest educational tools in the classroom and labs.

  • Ancillary Teachers and Resources

    We teach our students art, music, physical education, science, Spanish and provide well-rounded opportunities in addition to a traditional curriculum.

  • Financial Aid

    We provide assistance to those families who want their children to receive the best
    educational experiences, but would not be able to send their kids here without such aid.

And the list goes on…

As always, participation is equally (or more) important than the actual amount of the gifts itself so we invite you to make a pledge to AGF in whatever denomination works for you. (link to donate) We are more than happy to visit with anyone by phone or in person to discuss Annual Giving, the ongoing educational needs of the school, and how the much-needed moneys raised in this campaign are put to work.

My favorite subject is Judaic Studies. Look – I’ve got friends at every school around this area, but the way we do Judaics makes Beth Yeshurun perfect for me.
The teachers I’ve had have all made learning fun…They simplify the more complicated concepts and make them easier to understand.
