Support Ezra Academy


Your support for Ezra Academy is an investment in the Jewish community, one that for over five decades has delivered outstanding dividends. Ezra produces graduates who are academically curious and intellectually accomplished in Jewish and general studies. These remarkable young men and women go on to succeed in all walks of life, giving back to their communities through their leadership, knowledge, commitment, and passion. 

A gift to Ezra Academy supports our commitment to provide an outstanding day school education to any Jewish child, regardless of financial circumstances.

Ezra Academy offers a variety of opportunities for donors to participate in the support and education of the future leaders of the Jewish community:


  • Annual Fund Campaign: This is our major fundraising effort for the year. Funds from the Annual Fund Campaign are unrestricted dollars designated for financial assistance and curriculum development.

  • Annual Gala: An annual gala occurs every year in February or March. 

  • Scholarship Ad Book: Published once a year, the Ad Book generates tuition assistance dollars for qualifying families.

  • Donation Cards: Ezra Academy Donation Cards are available in the Development Office for $18. Donation Cards can be earmarked to acknowledge a special life cycle event or other important occasion.

  • Endowment Funds: Ezra Academy partners with the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven in the establishment and management of endowment funds for designated and general support of the school and its programs.
