Your gift makes every day happen
Weizmann is grateful for the longstanding generosity of our community.
As with most independent schools, tuition covers only a portion of the cost of the outstanding education at Weizmann. We depend on financial support from parents and guardians, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. Your donations help us meet our goal to provide exceptional opportunities for our students, teachers, and programs.
In addition, many grant programs request the participation of 100 percent of Weizmann's family, faculty, and staff to verify that we have community support.
The school leadership manages giving and volunteer opportunities for the school and works closely with the Board of Trustees and and our PTO to secure our school’s financial security and ensures for the future, including:
The Annual Fund
Every day, your gift to the Annual Fund makes a difference in the lives of all Weizmann students.
Each gift to the Annual Fund helps make up the difference between tuition and our operating budget. Making a contribution to the Annual Fund means you are enriching the educational experience of each and every student. Our Annual Fund ensures:
that our students have the most engaging study materials
that a Weizmann education is affordable for as many students as possible
and that we can retain the most dedicated and qualified teachers.
Our Annual Fund is sustained by generous gifts from Weizmann parents, alumni, faculty, staff, school board trustees, grandparents, community members, and foundations. As part of our school’s practice of Tzedakah (righteous giving) we have a proud tradition of 100% family, faculty and staff participation in our Annual Fund each year.

Weizmann has been an important hub of our community for more than three decades. Due to the quality of a Weizmann education and unwavering support from our community, our school is thriving. However, we are also acutely aware that ours is the only remaining Jewish Day School between North Hollywood and Las Vegas. To ensure that a Weizmann education will be available and affordable for many generations to come, our school has launched an Endowment campaign – which is like a long-term savings account for our school.
You can support our endowment through any combination of cash, multi-year pledges, legacy bequests (in a will or trust) or even insurance policies. All gifts pledged by June 2018 qualify our school for generous matching gifts and incentives.
Please contact Avi Bilu, President of the Board, or Shelly Freedenthal, Director of Resource Management, for more information on supporting our Endowment.
