JPDS-NC Giving Opportunities
JPDS-NC values the contributions of parents, alumni parents,
grandparents, staff, and friends in our extended community. We rely
upon our generous supporters to strengthen our school and help cover the costs of
our school initiatives. There are many ways to support JPDS-NC,
whether as a volunteer committing time or as a contributor making a donation.
Annual Ru’ach Campaign
The Ru’ach Campaign is the school’s annual fundraising initiative
that enables the school to carry out its educational programs. Salaries, professional development, tuition assistance, library and
technology resources, arts and sports programs, and other enriching
aspects of the school are funded in part through the annual Ru’ach Campaign.
Every child in our school directly benefits from every
dollar you contribute to the Ru’ach Campaign. Contributions to the Ru’ach Campaign
cover current year operating expenses and help fill the
what tuition covers and the actual cost of educating
each child. For the
2012-2013 school year the gap is $1,925
per student. This campaign is the foundation and focal point of our school’s fundraising efforts,
allowing us to build support for the mission of our school on a
consistent basis over time. Contribute to the Annual Ru'ach Campaign today!
Building Our Future Campaign
The Building Our Future Campaign is designed to address the long term needs of the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation's Capital. Gifts to this campaign support extraordinary initiatives, including our second campus, scholarship, accessibility, and other efforts designed to advance our institution and secure a foundation of success. A generous matching gift is underway for contributions to this campaign. Please contact Adina Kanefield for more information.
Many people choose JPDS-NC as a vehicle for recognizing special
life-cycle occasions, both joyous and sad. Donors make gifts in honor,
memory, or celebration of an individual or event. Parents and grandparents
also thank teachers with a gift to JPDS-NC. Whenever such a gift is
made, JPDS-NC acknowledges it with an honor or memory notice.
Make a gift in honor or memory of your loved ones today.
Purim Ball and Auction
The Purim Ball and Auction has been a JPDS-NC tradition for many
years. It is a time for our community to join together and celebrate
JPDS-NC and to honor individuals who have supported our school
or who serve as leaders in our community. Additional funds for the
school’s operating budget are raised through this event.

Our annual Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture provides an
opportunity for JPDS-NC to highlight its connection to Israel. Past
lecturers include Elena Kagan, Elie Wiesel, Condoleezza Rice, Yuval Rabin and
other dignitaries and commentators. An outstanding curriculum
complements the lecture and provides our students with insight
into the life of Rabin, the history of Israel, and the value of conflict
resolution and peace. JPDS-NC seeks grants and gifts to underwrite
this program. Please visit our Events page for more information.
