    stupid. i sell a ticket to you, you sell a ticket to me, same money going round and round in the community

    i dont have money to pay the tuition and the same way I dont have money to buy the tickets.

    just another way to pass the burden onto parents
    instead of fundraising

    The school is not mechuyov to fundraise. Parents however, do have to pay tuition. Let’s appreciate their efforts.

    Not true. I’m a shliach and lots of my programs such as Hebrew School, etc.. are affordable due to my fundraising. This is not just my case but the case of most Shluchim. For some reason day schools feel that they are an exemption. The Rebbe wanted Jewish education to be affordable and It is therfore the Shlichus of the Mosad to make it affordable. The only way is by fundraising and not taking shortcuts.

    The president of YU once said of a menahal

    Give money or get money from others or get out of the Mosed

    The school must raise money also

    $100 for the cheapest ticket?!?! People I know might spend $18 on a ticket but $100 isn’t a reasonable amount for the average crown heightser

    Unique landing page?

    This is a very interesting idea, but I’m afraid that CH’ers will be bombarded by people trying to sell physical tickets when many people have friends out of town.
    Maybe everyone should get a simple landing page or even the option to have a code that people can sell online and it will be attributed to them
    Much hatzalcha to the parents and the school!

    Dear #7, You are unfortunately mistaken. All schools, yeshivas and even day schools know they have to fundraise to cover their budget. This has been the case for all the years. The whole “tuition crisis” began because schools and yeshivos for some reason stopped fundraising. Ideally, tuition should be from each family what it could afford. In all fairness, itdoes take more effort to fundraise for a Lubavitch mosad for our children because (wrongly, if you as me) everyone is giving their ma’aser and tzedokoh to their brother, nephew, cousin, etc who is on shlichus and not to their own… Read more »

    If the tickets were $18 or $36, some of us would who can’t afford more could consider. But when the starting price is $100 – it’s unfortunately not an option.

    btw, same is with Hatzola’s raffle 🙁
