Why Give to JKHA/RKYHS? 

A gift to JKHA/RKYHS is an investment in our students, teachers and the future of the Jewish people. Your support ensures that JKHA/RKYHS will sustain and grow our nurturing environment, inspirational teachers, commitment to Torah principles, to academic excellence and help our students reach their full potential. 

Who Gives? 

Everyone -- parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and friends! We are grateful to our entire community and extended circle for supporting our campaign. Every gift is meaningful -- no matter the size of the donation.

Opportunities for Giving at JKHA/RKYHS -- The Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund helps provide the critical funds that enable us to fulfill our mission. Tuition and fees cover only 70% of the costs of educating JKHA/RKYHS students. Funds raised in our Annual Campaign allow us to close the budget gap. Your support of our Annual Campaign allows JKHA/RKYHS to meet daily operational needs while ensuring that our school remains affordable and accessible to our families. 

Ways to Participate in The Annual Fund:

Annual Dinner  

The Annual Dinner is the cornerstone of the JKHA/RKYHS Annual Campaign.  This evening of celebration is the most important fundraising event of the year for our Yeshiva, where our community of parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, trustees and friends join together to help us sustain our present, and build for our future. Participation and support helps make a difference in the life of a Jewish child.  It enables our school to continue its mission of inspiring excellence and enhancing all facets of our learning environment, as well as ensuring adequate financial assistance to an ever-growing number of families.


The ATID Society of Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy / Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School is a giving society formed to support the vitality and vibrancy of our institutional mission and is a vital component of our annual campaign.

Parnas Hayom

The Parnas Hayom (“Supporter of the Day”) Program gives parents, grandparents, and friends of JKHA/RKYHS the opportunity to honor or memorialize a loved one through the voices of our children learning Torah.

Tribute Cards 

Donations can be made to celebrate, honor or memorialize a loved one, friend or community member. JKHA/RKYHS will send a personalized card acknowledging your gift to the individual or family you designate.

Grandparent Giving Circle

Major Gifts

The L’Atidenu Financial Assistance Endowment Fund will help build a robust, permanent endowment to provide funding for the more than 50% of our JKHA/RKYHS students whose families require financial assistance to afford the cost of our Yeshiva’s exceptional Jewish education.  

The Campaign for Excellence is part of a unique challenge grant that will provide $5 million of infusion funding to elevate academics throughout our Yeshiva and to secure investment for capital improvements so our students continue to learn and flourish in a state-of-the-art learning environment.
