Annual Campaign—Help Us Get to 100% Participation!
Next, we would like to thank all parents, grandparents, friends, and supporters of CJDS who have contributed to our annual campaign. We are on our way to 100% parent participation! We appreciate the leadership of Inbar Kirson and Stacy Raviv, our CJDS Annual Campaign Co-Chairs.
Both Stacy and Inbar have been involved and committed to CJDS for many years. They have brought that commitment to their role as leaders in raising our annual funds. In a year where we are raising both annual and capital funds, it is challenging to meet our goals. With capital giving, we can all see the results in the bricks and mortar around us. With annual funds, it is a bit different. We can’t always see the results of our gifts in such a concrete way. However, the annual campaign supports the continuity and growth of our educational program and staffing, our ability to help families in a variety of different ways, and to keep us on the cutting-edge with changing technology and the latest research-based educational approaches.
Often people say to us that they wish they could give more to CJDS and is there anything else they could do aside from giving a contribution. The answer is, in addition to the many opportunities we offer for people to serve on committees or task forces, volunteering and serving as CJDS ambassadors, we have some new avenues for raising funds in which we would appreciate your help. In our new Mercaz (Welcome Center), you might have noticed a large monitor on the wall detailing the day’s activities and upcoming events. We are looking for corporate sponsors who would like to advertise in this prime location space. Every person who walks through the doors of CJDS will see this screen!
Our pricing list is attached. Those of you who work for businesses, law firms, medical groups, and vendors with whom you frequent, often they have marketing and advertising budgets which make it easy to respond to your ask. The key to the success of this initiative is . . . your willingness to make the ask.
Question: What’s the worst thing that could happen? Answer: Someone can say no. But just think about how good it will feel and how much good can be done if you solicit a marketing gift for our school and they say yes!!
