Support Our School

Giving Opportunities

The Brandeis Fund

The Brandeis Fund is our school’s annual fund campaign. It is the school's most important fundraising effort because it provides the greatest impact. It plays a key role in helping to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of operating the school. Every gift goes to work immediately to enrich each student’s educational experience.
Gifts to The Brandeis Fund support:
  • Innovative curriculum and academic program initiatives;
  • Socio-economic diversity in our community through our generous tuition assistance program;
  • Leading-edge technology in the classrooms and student access to laptops and devices to ensure that students can make the most of their learning;
  • Professional development opportunities for our outstanding faculty;
  • Athletics and arts programs;
  • Robust schedule of outdoor education and student field trips to support experiential learning of all students.

Major Gifts

Major gifts, also known as Leadership gifts, are large scale contributions made in addition to annual giving, that are used to transform school programs identified as strategic institutional priorities.

Our vibrant and diverse community comes together to strengthen and support the school and its mission during several events throughout the year.
Grandparents and Special Friends Day is a special occasion where we invite grandparents and special friends of our students to visit our school and celebrate their student’s learning and growth. It offers a rich opportunity to learn and share with each other the wisdom of our years and how it has shaped who we are today.
The annual spring fundraiser is a celebratory evening with dinner, cocktails, live auction, fund-a-need, and entertainment. The funds raised from this evening support the school’s tuition assistance program, strategic initiatives in support of curriculum development, and other areas critical to the operating budget of the school.

Tribute Gifts

Celebrate a simchah (happy occasion) or remember a loved one through a tribute donation. All tribute donations are recognized in the annual report and an acknowledgement is sent to the recipient expressing your thoughtfulness. 

Birthday Book Club

The Birthday Book Club is a wonderful way to celebrate your child's birthday, help instill a lifelong love of reading, and grow our media resource center. The club provides the media resource center with funds for additional materials and programming. With a donation of $18, a new book or media item will be added to our collection. A special label will be placed in the front of the book.
