  • Planned Gifts

    Planned gifts support the future of the school. These can include bequests, life insurance policies, charitable gift annuities and other deferred giving methods. These gifts anticipate the needs of future generations of children at Golda Och Academy.
Your donations 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.

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.
