Annual Campaign 2018/2019
Yavneh Day School’s Annual Campaign is the foundation of our Development program. Our community's generous donations allow Yavneh to meet the challenge of bridging the gap between tuition and actual operational expenses, providing the very best academic, cultural and spiritual experience for our students.  

Yavneh Day School flourishes today because of the generosity of those before. They provided the vision and resources to a school whose faculty, campus and teachings help our students succeed and exceed their own expectations.  We look to you to continue the tradition of support and commitment.

Each year we strive to reach 100% parent, teacher, board and administration participation in our Annual Campaign. Your support tells our community that you believe in Yavneh’s mission and makes our students’ education and Jewish experience a priority, reinforcing the belief our students deserve access to an outstanding academic and Jewish education.

What is the Annual Campaign?

The Annual Campaign is Yavneh’s largest fundraising effort of the year. The funds raised go directly to operational expenses. Tuition alone does not reach the financial needs.

How much and when should our family give?

Each family is asked to participate at a level meaningful to their family.  A gift of any size makes an impact. Our goal is to make the greatest impact on the Annual Campaign in fall, when we launch the campaign. 

Will my donation amount be listed publicly?

No.  Family names are listed alphabetically and within donor amount levels, but does not indicate the specific amount given. 

What other organizations support Yavneh Day School?

Yavneh Day School has been a recipient of grants from Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, The Bernard Slavitt Memorial Scholarship Fund, Legacy Heritage Scholarship Fund for Jewish Education and others.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes!  All donations to the Annual Campaign are 100% tax-deductible.  An acknowledgement letter is mailed to you shortly after receiving your donation for tax purposes.

Can I give stock?

Yes.  Gifts of appreciated securities provide an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift, regardless what you paid per share of stock. Instead of paying taxes on the gains, donated securities can offer significant tax advantages. 

Can I use a credit card?

Yes.  Please visit our Donate Now page to do so.

Can I pledge and pay later?

Yes. Please contact Director of Development for more information.

Can I pay over several months?

Yes.  Please visit our Donate Now page for this option or contact our Director of Development to secure your Annual Campaign Pledge.

Can I use an employer match or a volunteer grant?

Matching gift and volunteer grant programs are great ways to double your donation.  Many companies, such as eBay, Apple, Google, Intel, IBM and Netflix have matched previous donations and volunteer hours.  Please contact Yavneh's Director of Development or your company's human resource department for more information.
