The Foundation of our Development Program
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 for our students.
Each year we strive to reach 100% family participation through the Chai Challenge of our Annual Campaign. The support of our families shows the community that we believe in Yavneh’s mission, reinforcing the belief that our students deserve access to an outstanding academic Jewish education.
What is the Annual Campaign?
The Annual Campaign is Yavneh’s largest fundraising effort of the year. The money raised goes 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 them. A gift of any size makes a difference. Our goal is to make the greatest impact on the Annual Campaign in the fall, when we launch the campaign.
Will my donation amount be listed publicly?
Family names are listed alphabetically and within donor amount levels but does not indicate the specific amount given. You also have the option of making an anonymous donation. Please contact the Director of Development if you would like to donate anonymously.
What other organizations support Yavneh Day School?
Yavneh Day School has been a recipient of grants from the Altman-Aronow Charitable Foundation, the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, The Bernard Slavitt Memorial Scholarship Fund, Legacy Heritage Scholarship Fund for Jewish Education, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the Sosland Foundation, and the Wolff Family Private Foundation.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. As a 501(c)3 organization, donations to Yavneh Day School are 100% tax-deductible.
Can I donate 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 secure Donate Online page to do so.
Can I pledge and pay later?
Yes. Please contact our Director of Development for more information.
Can I pay over several months?
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.
