The Shefa Fund 2021-2022

The Shefa Fund is our annual campaign and the cornerstone of all fundraising for the school, as it provides critical funds needed to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and our daily operating expenses. Gifts to the Shefa Fund are a tax-deductible way to support the salaries of our uniquely talented faculty, the professional development essential for them to deliver Shefa’s specialized program, and financial support for children who couldn’t otherwise receive a Shefa education.

The Shefa School welcomes Bequests and Planned Gifts. Planned giving may improve your financial and tax situation while supporting the Shefa School. Charitable bequests are a wonderful way to perpetuate your gift, and support the School’s mission.

It is with tremendous excitement and gratitude that we share that the Shefa School has secured a new home at 17 West 60th Street! The building, which is located across from Columbus Circle and Central Park, exceeds our wildest expectations. This new home will allow us to sow the seeds for the next generation of Jewish learners and leaders by allowing us to increase our total capacity to nearly 350 students in a state-of-the art facility.

In order to make this all possible, we have launched Sowing the Seeds of Abundance: A Capital Campaign for the Shefa School, as we will need support from our community to turn this empty space into a school.

The Shefa School is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational organization and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
