A Culture of Philanthropy

Development at Rodeph Sholom School

Since its inception 50 years ago, Rodeph Sholom School has been proud to have a strong culture of philanthropy. Our teachers and staff are invaluable in guiding our students through their early lives and adolescence, and our families and friends offer tremendous support, year after year, to make that work possible and to help our programs thrive.

The Annual Fund, which is built into the school’s operating budget, is an annual initiative that supports all programs and operating costs incurred throughout the school year. We simply could not offer the exemplary level of program that we do without this annual support.

In addition, our school recently announced the public phase of an $11.5 million campaign, People, Place, Purpose: The Campaign for Rodeph Sholom School, a major fundraising effort and the school's largest. We invite all members of the community to join us in supporting the campaign and to help us honor 50 years of educational excellence, paving the way for the next 50 years.
In accordance with the UJA Day School Challenge, Rodeph Sholom School affirms the following statement:

“The creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal events in Jewish history. Recognizing the significance of the State and its national institutions, we seek to instill in our students an attachment to the State of Israel and its people as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare.”
