Giving

Gindi Maimonides Academy provides 530 students with an exceptional Jewish and secular education. Tuition fees cover 87% of the total cost of educating our children. We rely on the energy, talent and resources of our parent body and friends of the Academy to close the budget gap.

At Gindi Maimonides Academy, we have built a strong community with a core purpose to nurture and inspire our students to reach their greatest potential as Orthodox Jews in the modern world.  Through our program we strive for excellence, passion, connection, respect and commitment to being Jews in the today’s world.  Thank you for your interest in partnering with us to achieve these goals.

Funds raised from our Annual Campaign allow us to respond to immediate needs and capitalize on future opportunities. Our generous families and friends enable us to maintain our commitment to excellence, provide meaningful professional development opportunities to our staff, and retain a faculty that is unique in their ability to respond to student needs.

For information regarding our fundraising opportunities, contact Shana Fishman, Director of Development at sfishman@maimonidesla.com or 310.659.2456.

The Rosh Hashana Chinuch Habanim Appeal

The Rosh Hashana Chinuch Habanim Appeal allows every family to participate in this year’s Annual Campaign.  At the same time, it is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate a loved one’s yahrzeit, simcha, birthday, anniversary, or other celebratory events.  Your generous sponsorship will contribute towards the cost of offering each child a vibrant Jewish education, while celebrating or memorializing a loved one.  Donate here.

Tifferet Banim Fellowship Trustees Circle

Simcha Foundation

Introducing, the Simcha foundation. The Simcha Foundation was established as a way to thank Hashem for His goodness by commemorating the happy, joyous occasions of our lives. Funds donated to the Simcha Foundation are invested in a perpetual endowment fund and the proceeds are used to provide scholarships for children at Gindi Maimonides Academy. We invite you to commemorate your Simcha by adding your child’s name to our beautiful Simcha Wall located on the 3rd floor of the Kest Family Campus building. Click HERE to donate.
