At Hebrew Day Institute, maintaining the highest standards of academic excellence in a caring Jewish school is our top priority. Your gifts help us continue our commitment to the students of today and for generations to come. As with all independent schools, The Hebrew Day Institute relies on charitable support from parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff and community friends in order to meet our mission. Every gift is appreciated and makes a difference!
The Advancement Department can assist you in maximizing your support of The Hebrew Day Institute. For a confidential discussion please contact Renee Salzberg, Advancement Director, 240-399-6100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of Hebrew Day Institute's fundraising program and plays a critical role in helping Hebrew Day Institute maintain its high level of academic excellence. Gifts to the Annual Fund from parents, grandparents, friends, faculty, staff and alumni are used to supplement tuition that does not cover the entire cost of a Hebrew Day Institute education. Your donation to the Annual Fund each year provides many direct benefits for our students and faculty.
Endowment provides permanent funds that The Hebrew Day Institute can rely on year after year, generation to generation. It is vital that Hebrew Day Institute establish long-term financial stability. Endowment funds ensure that the school will be able to plan and carry out innovative projects and provide scholarship dollars without putting additional pressures on operating funds.
Endowment and Capital gifts are strategically important to the financial future and physical growth of the school. Capital gifts fund new facilities and are typically restricted to a specific project. Endowment gifts are not spent; they are invested and held for the long–term interest of the school.

“In the Tradition of Joey’s Tzedakah Box” Fund.
Sometime during his earliest years at Hebrew Day Institute, Joey, son of Henry and Ruth, studied a special unit on Tzedakah. During class, Joey made his own Tzedakah box. In large, block letters “Joey’s Tzedakah Box” appeared on the entire outer surface. His box was not much different than any of his classmates, what made it different was that Joey used it throughout his entire life. It sat on his dresser where he would fill it and donate the contents to a chosen organization, often to Hebrew Day Institute. After struggling with complications of Gaucher’s disease, Joey passed away in 2005. His parents found his Tzedakah box on his dresser in his room. It weighed 10 pounds!
Joey’s life was brief, but filled with many academic, professional and personal accomplishments, as well as many mitzvoth, performed modestly and humbly. His life continues to have enormous impact on those whom he knew. Today, his life has impact on Hebrew Day Institute students, teachers and faculty, most of whom he did not know. Students, faculty, parents, and the community are actively performing acts of Tzedakah “In the tradition of Joey’s Tzedakah Box” to help continue this legacy in order to teach children the true meaning of Tzedakah. Please consider Hebrew Day Institute and give generously.
Double the impact of your contribution through your company's matching gift program. Many corporations have a policy of matching the contributions of their employees to educational institutions. If your company has a matching gift program, please contact us and we will take care of the paperwork.
Gifts of Stock
Transferring Stock to Hebrew Day Institute is easy, and gifts of appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds and mutual funds, may be a particularly attractive way to support Hebrew Day Institute. A gift of appreciated, long-term marketable securities (owned for more than one year) will generally provide an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, while avoiding the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on sale.
