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.

Yavneh Day School flourishes today because of the generosity of those before.  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, 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 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 an 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 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 for tax purposes is mailed to you shortly after receiving your donation

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?

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 Online  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.
