The Legacy Fund

“As my parents planted for me, I will plant for the ones yet to be…”
(from the Talmud)

The Legacy Fund was created in 2006 to perpetuate the work of the Syracuse Hebrew Day School in developing the future leaders of the American Jewish community through its rigorous academic program rich in Jewish values and learning.

The purpose of the Legacy Fund is to provide financial assistance to the Day School, to cover the income lost through tuition reduction based on financial need, to cover increased costs, to keep up with special technological teaching aids, to fund building and maintenance projects and in these and other ways to enhance the quality education provided at the Syracuse Hebrew Day School. The Legacy Fund is administered through the Jewish Community Foundation of Central New York for the benefit of the Day School.

A Legacy Fund may be named in honor of the donor, in memory of an individual, in honor of a family or as deemed appropriate by the donor and the school.  A named Legacy Fund may also be established by a group of donors (e.g., the parents of a graduating class) who pool funds to reach the $10,000 minimum for a named Fund.

Gifts may also be made in any amount to the general Legacy Fund, in honor of special events, occasions such as and especially Bar/Bat Mitzvah, individuals or as memorial or commemorative tributes.
