A message from our Co-Chairs
Dear Fellow Kehillah Community Members,
As Co-Chairs of the 2020-21 Kehillah Fund, we are delighted to announce the kick-off of our annual fundraising appeal. The school relies on the Kehillah Fund to support important priorities, such as competitive teacher salaries and benefits, enriching professional development, a wider variety of elective courses, a robust arts curriculum, and an expanding athletics program. Your contribution this year also supports additional COVID-19 costs related to technology, professional development, emergency financial aid, facilities, and extra support for our heroic faculty and staff.
This year, our goal is to raise $1.5M and to receive a donation from 100% of our families. Clearly, every family plays a role in helping us attain these goals, particularly in light of the relatively small size of our school. Please know how much your gift truly matters. We really need every family to participate to the best of their abilities.
In the past, closing the gap between fundraising and tuition has been approximately $4K per student. However, this year we expect the gap to be greater than $6K per student as the COVID-19 costs are expected to be well over 400K. In addition, additional funding is required for scholarship funds as needs have increased due to the challenging economic environment.
Our Lent-Levine Foundation continues to generously provide matching donations. Gifts pledged by our board, all new gifts, and gifts at or above $1800 will be matched 1:1. Grandparent and faculty/staff gifts will be matched 2:1 and alumni gifts will be matched 3:1!
Kehillah’s Board of Directors and faculty/staff are also aiming for 100% participation in support of this year’s Kehillah Fund. We hope that you will celebrate the rosh hashanah, the head of the year, by joining us in giving to our school, our community, our Kehillah.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
2020-21 Kehillah Fund Co-Chairs,
Joanna Strober (Parent of Jared ’19, Ari, ’24)
Max Schireson (Parent of Jacob ’18, Isabelle ’20)
