The board of directors of Beth Rivkah has introduced an innovative fundraising campaign aimed at easing the burden of tuition for parents, while helping place the school on a solid financial footing.
In a letter to parents earlier this week, the board announced The Beth Rivkah Winter Raffle scheduled to take place on Jan 11, 2017/24 Teves 5778.
“A raffle is an exciting and proven fundraising technique,” explained Rabbi Yossi Baumgarten, the school’s newly hired Assistant Director of Development.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for the parents to take an active role in solidifying this amazing institution, but we wanted to add a unique incentive that would directly benefit our parent body.”
The unique incentive is that parents of Beth Rivkah students will have the opportunity to sell raffle tickets and reduce their tuition costs. The initial $200 worth of tickets sold by each family will go directly into Beth Rivkah’s development fund. Each additional ticket sold by a family will reduce their tuition dollar for dollar, with no limit or cap to the tuition reduction.
Aside from easing the tremendous financial burdens of a thriving school and assisting hardworking families with tuition, the board of directors believes this initiative will create a sense of cohesion necessary for Beth Rivkah to continue providing a top-notch chinuch experience.
“Ultimately we are a community school,” explained Mr. Dovid Junik, a Crown Heights businessman and board member. “Our students, parents and Hanhalah are all working towards the same goals. We believe that by working together Beth Rivkah will blossom from strength to strength.”
The raffle will also include some exciting prizes:
Grand Prize: $12,000 Jackpot
Prize 2: Free 2 year car lease
Prize 3: Two Round trip tickets to Israel
The fundraising campaign was well received by parents of Beth Rivkah’s student body.
“This is a creative way to get parents involved with the growth of the school and with their children’s education, not to mention save some money.”
Ticket packages begin as low as $100. For more information about ticket packages and prizes, visit bethrivkah.edu/raffle.
