Hillel Academy launches matching-gift campaign for alumni scholarship
Hillel Academy, the Dayton area’s Jewish day school for grades K through six, has launched a matching-gift campaign for its new alumni scholarship fund. Through Dec. 31, all contributions to the scholarship fund will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor.
According to the school, the scholarship will provide funds to any family who wants to send its Jewish children to Hillel, while also honoring Hillel alumni.
“The alumni scholarship fund provides an opportunity for hundreds of Hillel alumni to give back to their school and help our community’s children form strong Jewish identities and lifelong connections with Israel,” Hillel’s president, Andy Schwartz said. ”We are excited to see some of our alumni stepping up to keep school affordable and help us meet our match. Supporting Hillel is an investment in the future of our Dayton Jewish community.”
Hillel will continue its fundraising for the alumni scholarship in 2022, the school’s 60th anniversary year. For more information, go to daytonhillel.org.
