Greater MetroWest (the Jewish communities of Essex, Morris, Sussex and northern Union Counties) is nationally recognized as a leader in building endowments for Jewish day school education.
In the spring of 2007, 11 philanthropic families joined together with the Jewish Community Foundation of MetroWest NJ/United Jewish Communities of MetroWest NJ to commit millions of dollars to launch a $50 million campaign aimed at building significant long-term support for affordability and academic excellence at what was then MetroWest’s three Jewish day schools.
Through the Greater MetroWest Day School Campaign, our community, which now includes four day schools, seeks to build a foundation of support to provide the highest-quality, affordable day school education to generations of Jewish children—today and well into the future. Donors represent parents, grandparents, alumni parents, alumni and community members committed to our Jewish future.
The campaign is already infusing the schools with improvements today, including affordability grants for middle income families, enhancements to education, and various collaborative projects.
