Sparking and Strengthening Day School Funding

Jewish day schools build strong Jewish identities and an extensive peer community that supports a positive and knowledgeable Jewish identity.

Who is eligible?

In an effort to bring new donors into the community of day school supporters,  MATCH will provide matching funds to day schools in North America at 50 cents to the dollar for first-time gifts of at least $10,000 from donors who are not parents of a current day school student .

Donors who have previously given to day school education may participate if their new gift is at least five times greater than their largest previous donation or the sum of their donations to Jewish day school education in a fiscal year; whichever number is greater. The new gift must be at least $10,000.

How does it work?

Applications will be accepted online beginning on August 1, 2012, until January 15, 2013. Gifts paid between August 1, 2012 and May 15, 2013 may be eligible for matching funds. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all applications for the entire $3 million are submitted and approved.
