Every dollar given touches every student at Lerner – whether it supports our top-notch dual curriculum of Judaic and General Studies, our hands-on project based learning activities like the environmental curriculum and the Compassion Project, our incredible enrichment programs like PE, Art and Music or our amazing teachers and staff, who strive to instill our students with a love of learning and exploration. As is the case at most independent schools, tuition alone does not adequately fund our programs and facilities. Each year, we look to our donor community to help close the gap between the cost of a Lerner education and tuition.
A gift to Lerner grows and strengthens an incredible community institution which cultivates in our students an understanding and appreciation for Jewish identity, culture, traditions and spirituality and the impact every individual, no matter what the age, can have on building a better world.
Lerner thrives due to the tremendous support of our parents, alumni, grandparents and community. Lerner is a partnership – between teachers, students and parents, between faculty and staff, between Lerner and the Jewish community. Together we not only educate children in a warm, nurturing Jewish environment, but also create community - connecting families to each other and the larger Jewish community and training lay leaders who then share their expertise with other Jewish and communal organizations.
Make a pledge or donate to the Lerner Fund, Lerner’s annual fund campaign. The Lerner Fund is the school’s largest source of funding beyond tuition and is central to the school’s annual operating budget.
