Invest in our Students

The Ohr Torah Cincinnati Annual Fund is our school’s largest and most important annual giving campaign. Like many other independent Jewish schools, annual fundraising bridges the gap between tuition and operating costs. At OTC, tuition only covers less than half of our operating costs. Therefore, an additional $1.2M needs to be raised on an annual basis to ensure our school continues to deliver an excellent education to each of our students.  The Annual Fund provides immediate unrestricted funds that allow our school to provide financial assistance to families in need, professional development for the faculty, academic and extra-curricular enrichment opportunities for students, and much more.

Special recognition opportunities exist for donors who contribute $5,000 or more. These donors are invited to a special Major Gifts Appreciation Event. Donors who give at the Shomrei Torah Society level ($1,000 and above) are invited to a special annual Dessert Reception.
.
Our Annual Fund Fiscal year runs from August 1 to July 31. 

These funds support everything we do at OTC every day from academic and teaching excellence to professional development for teachers, simchadik experiences for our school, and the potential to expand extracurricular activities offered by OTC.

Funds also support experiential Jewish education and a multitude of leadership and enrichment opportunities for our students. The OTC Annual Fund ensures that the school can provide critical affordability and financial aid programs.

We strive to achieve 100% parent participation at any level of support. Major donors and foundations look to parent participation as a positive indicator of community engagement and support.

We would love to build a team of volunteers who help with our fundraising efforts. We are always looking for people who care deeply about Ohr Torah cincinnati and are invested in its future. If interested, please contact Erin Hill.
