Annual Fund contributions, Annual Benefit donations, directed gifts and tribute gifts all help to ensure that our school can continue academic excellence and Jewish learning. Thank you to the following grandparents who have made donations to Heilicher since July 2015.

HMJDS Annual Benefit
Participate in the Heilicher Annual Benefit, our largest event of the year, and an opportunity for our whole community to come together to celebrate our school. Whether through an event sponsorship, tribute gift, participation in the online or live auction, or by attending the event itself, there are many ways to be part of this wonderful evening.
Ways to Give
Each year, Heilicher students benefit from the philanthropic support of families across our community. Through the generosity of close to 700 annual donors, as well as those who have made meaningful endowment and legacy gifts to our school, we are able to create future generations of Jewish learners and leaders.
With your generous contributions, we can ensure that every child who desires an extraordinary Heilicher education has access to it. Through philanthropic support, the values of our parents, grandparents, and the generations that preceded them are perpetuated long into the future.

"Being Jewish has always been an important part of my life. The concept of l'dor vador (from generation to generation) really resonates with me. My parents wanted me to have Jewish values, and I want to preserve that link. The way we sustain our heritage is to ensure that the next generation is educated at HMJDS."
