Ways To Be Involved: Fundraising

Fundraising Program Information and Opportunities at Solomon Schechter Day School of Las Vegas.

Solomon Schechter Day School of Las Vegas raises funds for the various programs and opportunities that the school provides it's students. Here you will find an overview of some of the many fundraising activities that go on at the school.

The Schechter Annual Fund

The Schechter Annual Fund provides an opportunity for our community of parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, faculty, and friends to make a valuable contribution. The funds received provide much needed scholarship support as well as direct support for the day-to-day operations of the school.

Without the Schechter Annual Fund as an ongoing source of revenue, the choices for our school would be dramatically impacted, and tuition would increase to an even greater degree for everyone. As we strive for 100 percent parent participation, your gift, regardless of the amount, is a way to assure that the school continues to provide outstanding general academics and Judaic studies.

The Annual SSDS Gala

Every year administration, staff, and parents come together to hold the Annual SSDS Gala. The Gala is a vehicle in which the school uses to raise both money and awareness of the school and the many opportunities for partnership with student's families, temple members, and the overall Jewish community. Theme's such as "The Rockin Eighties" and "The Great Gatsby" make this event a fun night out that impacts the school and students in a positive way. Gala committee members organize and find volunteers and donations for the event. For more information about the SSDS Annual Gala, please contact us directly or attend the next PTO meeting.

Schechter Endowment

Solomon Schechter Day School of Las Vegas invites you to become a part of the Legacy Circle, an important initiative to enrich the financial future of the school and ensure the continuity of our wonderful traditions. The Legacy Circle will represent donors whose generosity and foresight will enable the school to thrive for future generations.

Schechter is a national leader in Jewish day school education and is one of the largest and finest independent schools in the country. Our history of steady growth and pursuit of excellence in both general academics and Judaic studies, as well as our development of a broad array of extracurricular programming, has established our position as a strong and vibrant K-5 institution.

We are committed to meeting the highest standards of academic excellence and creating an egalitarian environment imbued with Jewish values, culture, observance, and neshama. Many studies have documented the powerful role of Jewish day school education as central to the continuity and strength of the American Jewish community. For almost a decade, Solomon Schechter Day School of Las Vegas has been successful in teaching our children the essence of Judaism and helping each student develop a unique Jewish identity. Our goal is that when our students move on from Schechter, they are fully prepared to meet future academic challenges and are inspired to make Judaism a vital, relevant aspect of their lives.

One of the ways to ensure future financial security for Schechter is through legacy gifts and bequests to our endowment. A Legacy Circle gift is a donation which you can specify through estate planning, enabling you to leave a bequest in the future without tapping or committing your current assets. Through a Legacy Circle gift, you can help ensure that our school will be as strong for future generations as it is for our children today. The Legacy Circle will recognize all generous donors who participate in an endowment for the school, or who designate a charitable gift through a bequest or planned gift, regardless of the size of the donation.

Through your generosity to the Legacy Circle, you will help provide financial underpinning to sustain Jewish education in Southern Nevada and beyond.

We welcome you to consider joining hands in our Legacy Circle.

Adopt A Classroom

Parents are encouraged to volunteer to help their child's class. Every class has room moms and dads that have "adopted their class" and they, so generously, donate their time to our children. Please talk to your child's teacher for more information on this volunteer opportunity.

Grandparents Association

Our Solomon Schechter Day School of Las Vegas Grandparents are a dedicated bunch. So much so that we have a Grandparents Association. Our Grandparents Association gives our students a unique opportunity to bridge the gap of time.
