Is Your School Ready to Launch an Endowment Effort?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most Jewish day schools formerly believed that building an endowment sounded like a “nice to have.” That has changed with the focused efforts of AVI CHAI, PEJE, and the Jim Joseph Foundation promoting national endowment building programs for day schools.  Today, many day schools understand what universities, hospitals, cultural institutions - and the rest of the independent school world - have long recognized: endowment funds play a critical role in the current and future viability of a mission-driven organization.

So, what does it take to succeed in raising endowment funds?  PEJE recently evaluated the initial results of its signature endowment building program, Generations, which is funded in part by AVI CHAI and four community partners.  The results show the key enablers and obstacles that day schools encounter in building endowments.  Development professionals and Heads of School are invited to learn with PEJE’s Strategy Manager for Endowment and Legacy, Jill Goldenberg, and discover whether your school is ready to be successful in raising endowment funds. With the participation of Builders of Jewish Education in Los Angeles, we will use Generations LA schools as examples and help you learn how to prepare most effectively to begin your endowment efforts.
