Since its founding in 1958, Hillel has been guided by the principle to ensure that as many Jewish children in metropolitan Detroit who wish for a Jewish education will receive one, regardless of ability to pay. In fact, removing the barrier to entry has become a focal point of Hillel's mission, and we have many longstanding and new initiatives to assist families with tuition.
Throughout the year, our Annual Fund and other fundraisers raise much-needed dollars to sustain and strengthen our tuition assistance program. The most important gift every donor can make each year is a gift to our Annual Fund.
This year, in addition to your Annual Fund gift, we ask you to make a one-time gift to Hillel’s COVID-19 Challenge Fund. This fund will be used to alleviate expenses incurred to meet this year’s additional needs, such as allocating more tuition assistance, purchasing protective equipment and technology for students and staff. Any cumulative increase to both the COVID-19 Challenge Fund and to the Annual Fund, in excess of last year’s Annual Fund gift, will be matched 2:1 by an anonymous donor.
