The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy's Annual Fund
Annual Fund - Yearly Operational Costs. The Annual Fund subsidizes the difference between what it costs the school to educate every child, and what tuition covers. Sometimes this fund is referred to A.C.E. – Actual Cost to Educate. The dollars raised for the Annual Fund offset the cost of tuition and enables the school to keep tuition as low as possible, yet still continue to provide the highest quality resources, in both personnel and classroom materials, to the children every day. At Meyer Academy, based on our current enrollment, our A.C.E. gap is approximately $4,500 per child. This $4,500 per child deficit is raised though our main fundraising events; the Gala, Luncheon, Grandparents’ Day Campaign, Boosterthon FunRun, as well as through personal and corporate solicitations and the sale of tribute cards.
