Yavneh Building Renovation

As I've stated before, I don't really buy that these projects don't affect the tuition price.  The "sizeable pledges" could be geared towards operations & not to big vanity projects.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that the Yavneh Board of Directors have approved a  building renovation, beginning with a complete modernization of the Early Childhood Wing. Further phases of the project include an expansion of the parking lot, with up to 82 additional parking spaces, and the creation of a 1,000 square foot Atrium. This Atrium will create a more suitable entrance to our school, with a welcome center and a multi-purpose area. We hope to begin construction on the parking lot this fall, with the goal of building the Atrium next summer.

At Yavneh, our core belief is in “affordable excellence”. This project is being undertaken with the goal of creating a state of the art facility for our children, while keeping a close eye on managing our expenses. As of now, there is no plan to incur any debt for this project.

We have been fortunate to lower tuition the past two years and we hope to be able to continue this trend going forward. It is with this in mind that we are creating a capital campaign, to ensure the affordability of Yavneh tuition for years to come. We have already received several sizeable pledges which will help get this project off the ground, but we do need your support to reach our goals while keeping tuition in check.

In the coming weeks we will formally introduce our capital campaign and strongly encourage all who are able to participate.
Best Wishes,
