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 specific communities in North America at 50 cents to the dollar for first-time gifts of at least $10,000.  

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 for MATCH Chicago will be accepted beginning on February 2, 2015 until November 2, 2015. Gifts paid between February 2, 2015 and December 31, 2015 may be eligible for matching funds. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all applications for the entire pool are submitted and approved.
