Thank you for your interest in supporting the Wornick Jewish Day School!

Every student’s educational experience here is enriched by a tradition of giving. The expertise, time and resources of alumni, parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends of Wornick are investments in our students as agents of action and change in a world that needs them. Meaningful contributions from each community member make an impact. Your gift ensures that more students can have access to the opportunities available through a Wornick education; your gift ensures that these opportunities remain distinctive and powerful.

We are grateful that you are part of the Wornick community. There are many ways you can contribute, and we hope you will contact the Development Office at or 650-378-2629 for more information.

I make giving to Wornick a priority every year. I admit, as a new parent, I didn’t really understand why I was being asked to give more than my tuition...but now I get it. Our tuition dollars unfortunately don’t cover the costs of all the reasons I love the school: amazing teachers who have challenged and supported my three kids when needed, sustaining a school AND family community. Most importantly for me, I have seen powerful social-emotional learning in my kids; I have seen such kindness and empathy grow in them supported and harnessed by the school. They are happy to go to school; it is a place that brings them joy. To me, this type of education is priceless. Rachel C., Wornick Parent
