Financial Benchmarking

March 28, 2022

Following a study of 2 dozen Jewish early childhood center, the Chicago Jewish Early Childhood Collaborative used the results to develop a rubric for financial sustainability for Jewish early childhood centers.

This tool enables centers to track the health of their financial system and set goals to maximize sustainability. The tool is especially applicable to community centers, synagogue-based programs, and independent centers.

Join Kate Warach and Amy Gudgeon to learn about the tool and the financial practices it advances, and begin to plot your school's journey toward greater sustainability.

This offering is brought to you by a collaboration between JCC Association's Sheva Center, Early Childhood Educators of Reform Judaism (ECE-RJ), The Paradigm Project, the Jewish Education Project, the Jewish Early Childhood Association, American Jewish University, the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education at JTS, and the Jewish Federations and education agencies of Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver/Boulder, Los Angeles, Greater MetroWest NJ, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
