Annual Fund

Our team of Development professionals and lay leaders works closely with current and former parents, alumni, grandparents and friends — to ensure that our school can provide the best possible Jewish day school education for students today and in the future. By giving to Golda Och Academy, you make a difference in the lives of our students and in the future of the Jewish people.

Our greatest challenge is that tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of a Jewish day school education at Golda Och Academy. The Golda Och Academy Annual Fund helps us to provide critical funds that enable us to fulfill our mission.

Please join us and take advantage of this important opportunity to be a partner in Jewish continuity for generations to come. The GOA Annual Fund supports:

• Academic and Teaching Excellence
• Student Life and Extracurricular Activities
• Jewish Community and Identity
• Affordability and Financial Aid

Capital and Endowment Giving

In addition, capital and endowment gifts and multi-year pledges to Golda Och Academy help us build new state-of the-art facilities on our two campuses and help ensure our school’s ability to provide an excellent and affordable Jewish education for generations of students in the future.
"As a parent you make repeated, important, decisions about your children' lives. None might be more important than choosing the neighborhood in which you will raise them and the school to which you will send them. If you want to project what sort of people your children will grow up to be, consider carefully what kind of people you are exposing them to (from The Book of Jewish Values by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin). SSDS of Union and Essex, now GOA, is the 'neighborhood' we wanted our children and now our grandchildren to be part of. We will continue to do all we can to make certain this special place will thrive and be available for the greater Jewish community."

─Joan and Harvey Bucholtz, current grandparents
