Jewish day school education is one of the most effective means of transmitting our heritage and traditions to our next generation of Jewish children. An endowment fund supporting our Day School can help make this happen and can also make a significant difference in the lives of our students, and their families.
An endowment fund is an investment account that only disperses a percentage each year. So a large endowment can fund programs, keep tuition in check and improve the education of the students in our Day School.
If endowment funds are such a great idea, why don’t more schools have them?
Most schools are too busy teaching students, admitting news ones and helping families to have the time to organize an endowment campaign.
Endowment campaigns raise funds to be used in the future. Many schools need to raise funds for the here and now. So, although they are a great idea, most schools don’t have the time, focus, or expertise to organize an endowment campaign.
The Trana and Ronald Labowe Family Day School of Adat Ari El was chosen to participate in Generations LA, a collaborative effort to build day school endowments. We now have the expertise and emphasis to build an endowment fund.
Our school staff and lay leaders are provided with specialized coaching.
Our staff and lay leadership are invited to meetings and seminars to discuss school activities and learn about new development techniques.
We receive an additional one-to-four match from the Simha and Sara Lainer Day School Endowment Fund Matching Program.
