Charities Will Match Gifts to Day Schools

A partnership of Jewish philanthropies will match $6 million of new donations to Jewish day schools with an additional $3 million.

Under the program, called Match, the Avi Chai and Kohelet Foundations will match donations given between August 1, 2012 and May 15, 2013 at 50 cents to the dollar, according to a press release. In order to qualify for the matching funds, a school must identify a donor and apply to the program. The donor then applies individually as well.

Donations must be $10,000 or more and an individual school can qualify for up to $50,000 of matching funds.

This is the fourth round of the Match program since 2004, and it is being launched in partnership with the Jewish Funders Network and the Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education.

“Since its inception, Match has sent a consistent message: day schools must strengthen their financial support by building and stewarding donor relationships,” said PEJE Executive Director Amy Katz in the press release.
