Our Annual campaign

Our annual fund, Chai Excellence Fund, is the community commitment to support everything you love about Wornick – every year. The funds raised make up the difference between tuition and the operating budget, and provide our students with an innovative and compelling experience (in-person or online), inspire our teachers to dream big, and assure the health and safety of our community.

We would like to thank all of our Chai Excellence donors for their support, trust, and inspiration. Your contribution empowers and enriches our educators and directly impacts our students.

We are proud to say we had 100% participation from our parents, board and staff for the 2020-21 school year! This illustrates the remarkable dedication our closest community members have to maintain Wornick’s unique environment and education. Please help us continue this fabulous tradition and make a gift that is meaningful to you today.

You can choose which Chai Excellence funds you would like to support:

  1. Wornick’s Greatest Need, Including Hybrid/Remote Learning Environments
  2. Tuition Assistance
  3. Supporting Jewish Life & Learning
  4. Enrichment Programs (Tech, Arts & Sports)
