A key part of the Jewish Day School affordability agenda involves leveraging community power to increase revenue and efficiencies.
Five particularly promising ideas are:
1. Outsource key services including facilities maintenance for multiple schools.
2. Purchase HR and benefit services through Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs).
3. Create and market leading edge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs in collaboration with Israeli institutions and experts to enhance quality, build brand distinction, and grow enrollment.
4. Launch grassroots fundraising campaigns supported by all schools and synagogues a la NNJKids in Bergen County and Chicago’s Kehillah Fund.
5. Launch communal endowment programs with support from Federations, and guidance from experts, like PEJE.
It will take a village to help make day schools sustainable!
