DONATE TO THE RELIGIOUS SCHOOL "UNFUNDRAISER"
No tickets, no wrapping paper, no popcorn.
We ask that you simply give what you can to support the AAC Religious School.
Over the past few years, and working in tandem with parents and families, Agudas Achim Congregation’s youth and religious school programs have flourished and expanded. In the past three years, with the guidance and energy of Chaya Silver, the education and youth director since 2014, we have augmented youth Shabbat and High Holiday programs, developed and incorporated more social, community giving, and cultural programs, and increased programming for our youngest children.
Because Religious School tuition only makes up about half of the expenses of running our vibrant program, the congregation generously provides the remainder. To help sustain this funding, the Religious School has an annual fundraising obligation of at least $4,500.
Last year, we held our first “un-fundraiser” and we are doing it again this year. We are not asking you to buy tickets or to attend a function; rather, we are looking for you to simply donate what you can on behalf on the Religious School.
These funds will support needs and activities such as:
- Salaries for our wonderful teachers
- Arts and craft supplies for our kids
- Textbooks and innovative education materials
- Holiday celebrations for students
- Exciting and educational field trips
- And more!
Please consider making a donation of $50 or more. If everyone gives, we can easily meet our obligation, helping secure essential funds for our children’s religious school education. You can conveniently make a donation using a credit card at our edbacker site goo.gl/6KEjX9.
You may donate by check to Agudas Achim Congregation, 2908 Valley Drive, Alexandria VA, 22302. If you send a check, please put “Religious School Fundraiser” in the memo. Please help us reach our obligation by sending your donation by Friday, February 28.
To make your efforts and donations go even further, please share the link to our fundraiser with family and friends, too.
Thank you for your support!
Amy Kaminski and David Weingart on behalf of The Youth and Religious School Committee
