Remember the Future

Schechter Westchester is excited to announce the establishment of the Legacy Circle, an ongoing initiative to enrich the financial future of the school and ensure the continuity of our wonderful traditions. The Legacy Circle will represent donors whose generosity and foresight will enable the school to thrive for future generations.

Schechter Westchester is a national leader in Jewish day school education. Our history of steady growth and pursuit of excellence in both general academics and Judaic studies, as well as our development of a broad array of extracurricular programming, has established our position as a strong and vibrant K-12 institution.

We are committed to meeting the highest standards of academic excellence and creating an egalitarian environment imbued with Jewish values, culture, observance, and neshama (soul). Many studies have documented the powerful role of Jewish day school education as central to the continuity and strength of the American Jewish community. For more than four decades, Schechter Westchester has been successful in teaching our children the essence of Judaism and helping each student develop a unique Jewish identity. Our goal is that when our students move on from Schechter Westchester, they are fully prepared to meet future academic challenges and are inspired to make Judaism a vital, relevant aspect of their lives.

One of the ways to ensure future financial security for Schechter Westchester is through legacy gifts and bequests to our endowment. A Legacy Circle gift is a donation which you can specify through estate planning, enabling you to leave a bequest in the future without tapping or committing your current assets. Through a Legacy Circle gift, you can help ensure that our school will be as strong for future generations as it is for our children today.

The Legacy Circle will recognize all generous donors who participate in an endowment for the school, or who designate a charitable gift through a bequest or planned gift, regardless of the size of the donation.

Through your generosity to the Legacy Circle, you will help provide financial underpinning to sustain Jewish education in Westchester County and beyond.

We welcome you to consider joining hands in our Legacy Circle.
