Ways to Give

We would like to start by thanking you! We appreciate your intention to support Wornick and your generosity. Your contribution is essential to empower and enrich our educators and directly impact our students.

Every year Wornick is able to reach its fundraising goals through various participation opportunities. Some ways in which our community participates are via our Chai Excellence (Annual Giving) Fund, end-of-the-year matching challenge, Poker Night, and our Annual Gala. 

All gifts can be made in honor or memory of friends or family and for significant life cycle events. A card acknowledging your thoughtful gift will be sent by Wornick to your honoree or the family of the memorialized at your request. The amount of the gift will not be disclosed.
