At Associated, we believe that Jewish education is a birthright and not a privilege. Each year, hundreds of children who might not otherwise receive a Jewish education, are provided with financial assistance so they can benefit from all that Associated has to offer. Over the years, thousands of children at Associated have been the recipients of this assistance which has enhanced their lives and the lives of their families.
There are many ways that you can provide your support to help Associated maintain its commitment to excellence in Jewish education: Kadima Annual Campaign, Tribute Cards, Program Specific Funds, Scholarship and Endowment funds, Impact Gifts, Planned Giving.
If you would like to discuss other giving opportunities or ways in which you can use a variety of financial instruments to support Associated, please feel free to contact our Advancement Office by phone at 905-889-3998, ext 544.
In the meantime, here is some inspiration:
Samuel J. Sable z"l
"Jewish education is the most important thing. If we want our Jewish community to survive and thrive, we must ensure the future of Jewish education. I would like to see Associated continue from strength to strength."
"Associated is creating, inspiring and nurturing the Jewish community of tomorrow. Jewish education is the link between the past and the Jewish future for today's children. By proudly supporting Associated, I feel that I am doing my part to help strengthen that link."
"All four of my children attended Associated and received a tremendous education. Our community is, and will continue to be, a better place because of the education children are receiving at Associated and I want to continue to contribute to that future."
"As an alumnus, I know first-hand that Associated's excellent educational program is providing the children of our community with the foundation for a love of learning that will last a lifetime."
Kadima, Annual Campaign
By supporting Kadima, you can help ensure that many more children will have access to Jewish education, and in turn, help ensure the future of our Jewish community.
- Provide vital annual funding that the school can rely on year-to-year.
- Recognize our community of valued annual donors in a respectful and meaningful way.
- Inspire students by beautifying the Danilack Middle School Beit Knesset with an “Illustrated Torah”, consisting of brightly coloured hand-drawn renderings of each Parsha by Israeli artist, Michal Meron, that will be individually framed and mounted. Unique donor recognition will form an integral part of this special display.
A gift to Kadima supports excellence and innovation at Associated and ensures that every Jewish child has the opportunity to benefit from Jewish education.
If you share our belief in the Jewish future, our Jewish community and the essential nature of Jewish education, please consider making a gift to Kadima. You can make your donation online. Or you can contact our Advancement Office by email or by phone at 905-889-3998, ext 544.
You can honour someone’s memory or celebrate a lifecycle event with cards that are meaningful to you, your friends and loved ones. These cards are appropriate for many significant occasions throughout the year, including birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, holidays and bereavement. A special acknowledgement card is sent to the family or friends advising them of your thoughtful gesture.
Tribute cards start at $10 each and you will receive a charitable tax receipt.
The breadth and the depth of the educational experience at Associated creates many opportunities for Associated supporters to fund specific programs. In some instances, these are existing programs that can be maintained or enhanced through the support of donors. In others, initiatives have been identified but can only be brought to fruition with the help of supporters.
For more information on establishing or contributing to a Program Specific fund, please contact Rella Margolis by email or by phone at 416-494-7666, ext. 261.
Our major donors demonstrate leadership by affecting dramatic changes through large infusions of resources. Through their size and scope, these major gifts have impact on the entire organization. Impact gifts have direct and long-lasting effects on the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of students. We understand that donors want their contributions to have a direct and discernible consequence, while at the same time, fitting into their own personal financial plan.
Major gifts are often a means of leaving a lasting legacy that will benefit Associated well into the future. We work diligently with our major donors to tailor a gifting program that meets the objectives of the supporter while maximizing the effect the gift will have on the school. Impact gifts are an opportunity for donors to be partners with Associated in realizing our bold vision for the future.
To find out how your support can have a lasting impact at Associated, please contact our Advancement Office by email or by phone at 905-889-3998 x 544.
A planned gift is a means of arranging a donation now so that Associated and its students will realize the
benefits in the future.

Types of planned gifts can include bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, RRIFs, gifts of securities, gifts in kind, gifts of residual interest and gifts of life insurance policies. Many donors find these arrangements very attractive because they can help satisfy financial and philanthropic goals by making a larger gift than would otherwise be possible.
