Ru'ach Week: Be Part of Something Great!

Ru'ach Week: Be Part of Something Great! Thank You for Your Gift
Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation's Capital

The Goal

Between now and June 30, MILTON needs to raise at least $1.6 million. Your generous gift makes a real difference in the classroom, and your participation helps the school leverage grants and major gifts in the community. Please give during Ru’ach Week. Every dollar makes a difference, every day.

​All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Under the CARES Act, cash gifts made in 2020 may be eligible for expanded charitable giving deductions.

ONE Community. ONE Week. ONE goal: to support the school we all love!

Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation's Capital is a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN 52-2115715), contributions to which are tax-deductible to the exten allowed by law. No goods or services are provided in exchange for charitable donations.


Annual giving fills the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating our children. Up to 15% of the school's budget is supported by philanthropic gifts from across the community - including over 90% of the current parent body. Your gift makes a MILTON education possible, maintaining the highest caliber faculty, low student-teacher ratios, and providing rich, experiential programming. 

This year, costs related to COVID-19 have added substantially to the budget. Your generosity will ensure that our children continue to explore, play, and grow in a responsible and safe environment. 

Double Your Impact - Your early gift will be matched 1:1!

As Ru'ach Week opens, a generous donor has pledged to match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000. This week only, you can double your dollars and have twice the impact!

PLUS, for every recurring gift pledged, MILTON will receive an additional $100.
