The Office of Institutional Advancement invites the entire Schechter Manhattan community to join our efforts to honor and advance the mission of our school by making a philanthropic gift and volunteering to encourage others to give as well.


Schechter Manhattan relies on its Annual Campaign to meet budgetary needs that tuition does not cover. It takes the collective effort of parents, grandparents, trustees, community members, alumni and their families to ensure that our school continues to deliver the rigorous and menschlich education for which we are known. In addition to the Annual Fund, our school benefits from planned gifts and the Annual Dinner & Auction. Last year nearly 90% of families supported our annual campaign. Those families joined hundreds of friends within the community in supporting the school.

Schechter Manhattan is dedicated to making our education accessible to all families seeking a Jewish Day School education. In the 2015-16 school year we offered over $2 million of tuition assistance to new and returning families. Your gifts ensure that our school will remain fiscally strong and have the financial resources to be on the cutting edge of progressive education and academic excellence.
