Grassroots Supports Raise Toronto: Rise Up for Jewish Day Schools

Rise up Toronto–Rise up for Jewish Education is the unprecedented combined fundraising effort of 14 Toronto day schools on June 20, 2017. Each school is conducting a telethon to contact donors.

Raise Toronto

For just 24 hours, from 12 PM June 20th to 12 PM June 21st, every donation will be QUADRUPLED by generous donors.


GAJE urges you to donate to the school of your choice on June 20th. When the telethon contacts you, please designate your donation for tuition reduction and tuition assistance to families.

GAJE endorses donating to our schools as a vital part of our goal to help make Jewish day school education affordable for all.

Whichever school you support, please do the following:

1. Write to the school and tell the board and the head of school that reducing tuition fees and increasing tuition assistance are the top priorities for the school. For a list of school contacts, see here.

2. Send the same message to Adam Minsky, President and CEO of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto ( Tell UJA that reducing tuition fees and increasing tuition assistance are the top priorities for our community.

3. Send a copy of your message to us at GAJE (

The Rise up Toronto campaign is a great opportunity to support our schools and make Jewish education affordable. The dramatic tuition reductions at CHAT and the B’nai Akiva schools show the way forward. Wonderful as they are, they must be expanded to all the schools and many more families.

This is your chance to make an impact on affordability, support your school of choice and deliver a message that reducing tuition fees and increasing tuition assistance are top priorities.

Visit on June 20th to rise up! Spread the word!
