The Chai Fund
We recognize that a robust, innovative, and affordable Jewish learning environment is a necessity for a vibrant Jewish tomorrow. A Lerner School endowment will allow us to not only sustain our school, but also to think bigger, reach higher, and transform our small southern Jewish Community Day School into a powerhouse of Jewish learning and living that is desired by many and admired by all. It will give us the freedom to go beyond our current successes, and the ability to invest and innovate across multiple arenas, both within and beyond the classroom.
In 2014 the Lerner Board established the Chai Endowment Fund in honor of Lerner’s 18th year. The following year Lerner was accepted into a three year endowment building program, sponsored by PEJE (The Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education) and the AVI CHAI Foundation.
Your commitment to the Chai Endowment Fund will ensure a Lerner education for students now and generations to come.
