What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund believes that a rich educational background prepares our children to contribute to the community and successfully interface with the larger society. Our schools are critical to generating vibrancy in communal Jewish life and to ensure that the Jewish community continues to thrive. This education comes at a high cost. The Kehillah Fund implements a communal funding system to support Jewish education into the future. It provides the Community Day Schools with monthly funding to help alleviate high costs, create Jewish society leaders, and to ensure no child is left behind.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund is dedicated to funding the Jewish day schools across Chicago. By doing such, the Kehillah Fund assists in creating a funnel for the worldwide Jewish community to support all Jewish children and ensure they receive a full and proper education. In turn this perpetuates Jewish identity and leaders in the generations to come.

We implement a communal funding system to support the future of Jewish education. Some of the ways in which we create this funding are; automatic monthly donations, yearly donations, special education campaigns, neediest children campaigns, one time gifts, legacy donations, learning sponsorship and community advertisements.

We have a team that works diligently on campaigns, sponsorship, and prospect/donor relations and cultivation. Currently we process the pledges of over 1700 members and issue over $60,000 monthly to our local day schools on a per capita student enrollment basis.

We've established a highly effective and efficient system to ensure that funding reaches all our schools every month with a simple, single sign-up and pledge. Each month we process the pledges of over 1700 members and issue over $60,000 in total to our schools on a per capita student enrollment basis. We've been doing this for over 20 years and directed more than $15 million of communal funding to-date, since 2004, helping our local schools provide outstanding education, rich programming, and extensive student services.
