BUILD OUR FUTURE
A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ANCHOR JEWISH DAY SCHOOL EDUCATION AND JEWISH LIFE IN SOUTH JERSEY
In the 50 years since its inception, Politz day School, has grown into a thriving academic institution, supporting the notion that a Jewish day school education remains a cornerstone of continuity for the Jewish people—arguably, one that is needed now more than ever before. At this unique moment in the school’s history, Politz is launching concurrent Capital and Endowment campaigns to create an optimal campus while at the same time expanding endowments to support the highest levels of educational excellence and accessibility for all Jewish families, regardless of income. The goal is to stimulate, and then accommodate, continued enrollment growth and ensure the school’s future as a competitive, inspirational, thriving Jewish day school that is an anchor of Jewish life for South Jersey and beyond.
ENDOWMENT GROWTH FOR EXCELLENCE AND AFFORDABILITY
Politz seeks to grow its endowment assets to approximately $10 million by 2020. Broad endowment support is a cornerstone of success for private independent schools. A larger endowment will help both stimulate and support robust enrollment, which—when combined with careful fiscal management and continued success in annual fundraising— will secure the long-term fiscal health of the institution.
REVITALIZATION OF THE BUILDING AND CAMPUS
To compete with quality private and public schools in the area, Politz needs a vastly improved and expanded physical structure, and development of specific areas of excellence to attract and retain Jewish families. The Krupnick Family Gymnasium will feature a regulation basketball court, lockers, and fitness and sports equipment, and will be easily transferable to cafeteria use. The Makerspace and C.R.E.A.T.E. Laboratory (Construction, Resource, Engineering, Art, Technology Environment) will enhance our curriculum, already rich in the ideals of S.T.E.A.M., by deepening the focus on integrating experiential learning to introduce and enhance multi-level thinking, incorporating inquiry, collaboration and an emphasis on project-based learning. This space will be rich with pedagogy and tiered levels of learning opportunities for children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade.
