What organization are you representing?

Achieving long-term sustainability for private day schools, securing and stewarding major gift givers, making schools affordable to middle class families

What is your position within your organization?

What topic areas would be most helpful for you (or your org!) to learn about?

We need to ramp up fundraising to sustain an expanding school with rapidly growing enrollment. We also need to devise strategies which will ensure its long-term stability. Keys to achieving these goals are initiating a major gifts campaign, developing a planned giving program and create an endowment-- none of which exists at the present time.

My name is Jerry Stern, and I'm the co-founder of Stern Hebrew (now Kohelet Yeshiva) High School. As a volunteer, I have raised significant funds for the school and spearheaded marketing and recruitment efforts since it opened in September 2000.

What Jerry S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I enjoyed being part of the group and learned some helpful techniques in soliciting major gifts
