We have 24 hours to raise $150,000 from the Gesher community. All gifts, up to $80,000, will be matched dollar for dollar by the generosity of the Gesher Board of Directors, which is made up of parents, community members, and alumni. All gifts are tax deductible.
The love and support of Gesher from the community has helped provide Jewish students in Northern VA the opportunity to receive a caring, joyful, pluralistic Jewish education for the past 40 years. We ask you to continue to embrace our school, students and faculty by participating in Giving Tuesday with a gift that is meaningful to you.
In a typical year, tuition income covers approximately 79% of the operating budget. Last year, Gesher provided $1,016,028 in financial aid and discounts alone. It is essential that we raise the additional 21% to support professional development and teacher salaries, tuition assistance and our scholarship fund, bus transportation, security, our Israel fund for our 8th grade trip and so much more.
Thank you for believing in the importance of Jewish education and for making Gesher Jewish Day School a philanthropic priority for your family. We are forever grateful for your ongoing commitment and support
