Giving Opportunities

Speaker at Podium

Gottesman RTW Academy depends on the support of parents, friends, grandparents, alumnae, and community members who believe in its mission of maintaining high standards of academic excellence while providing a nurturing environment infused with the richness of Jewish life.

Like many private and Jewish day schools, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of educating each child in our school; our tuition covers approximately 70% of that cost. The funds that are raised each year help cover teacher enrichment, special programming, and the school's overall ability to enhance the environment for our student community. The Academy offers a number of ways to give a tax-deductible contribution that will help us to continue to provide the highest quality education and programming to current and future generations of Jewish children.

  • Shomrei Torah: Our Annual Campaign is the cornerstone of support for our operational and scholarship needs. Its goal is to sustain and enhance the highest quality academic program, provide tuition relief, and allow for needed improvements in our buildings and grounds.

  • 8th Grade Israel Trip: A gift to this fund will support scholarships for students from needy families to take part in this annual two-week trip, a culmination of their studies at GRTWA and, for many, a life-shaping experience. 


  • Lillie Brandt Early Childhood Center: Purchase a ladybug, butterfly, or cloud to honor a loved one. Donations go to the Lillie Brandt Early Childhood Center Fund which supports the many educational programs throughout the school.

  • Circle of Life Donor Recognition Wall: Purchase a leaf, acorn, or stone on our Circle of Life Wall in the GRTWA Sanctuary in honor or in memory of a loved one, to memorialize a life-cycle event, or to honor a special person. Donations support GRTWA.

  • George z"l and Ilene Wolff Library/Media Center Fund: Make a donation that will support the purchase of library books, technology, and creative programming for our beautiful new library/media center.

  • Classroom Mezuzah: Honor a loved one by naming a classroom mezuzah in his or her name. Gifts to this program will support GRTWA.

  • ECC Playground and The Community Garden: Purchase a flower for the fence around either the ECC Playground or the Community Garden. Your gift will help to enhance educational programming.

  • Performing Arts Theater Fund (PATF): The Spring Play is a full-fledge theatrical performance featuring our students. Your donation will help to support this educational program.

  • Tribute: Tribute cards offer a thoughtful way to celebrate a simcha or express sympathy. We will send a card in your name, and you will receive written acknowledgement of the gift.

You can make a difference as all gifts, no matter how small or large, are essential to our school's overall financial well-being. Please consider making a donation today. For more information on any of these opportunities, to make a donation, or to purchase a tribute, contact Naomi Bacharach '79, Director of Institutional Advancement, at 973-584-5530, ext 3015, or [email protected].
