make a tribute or memorial donation

Tribute cards offer a thoughtful way to honor a simcha—a bar/bat mitzvah, a birthday, an anniversary or a graduation—or to send condolences to those who have lost a loved one. 
The Development Office will be happy to add a personalized message to a card and send it out on your behalf. Minimum donation per card is $18.
You may donate to support General Operations, by completing the tribute form below.

Tribute Card Packs

You may buy Bernard Zell tribute cards in packs to send out as you wish. For example, some donors choose to purchase Bernard Zell tribute cards for Bar and Bat Mitzvah presents or for family and friends in lieu of (or in addition to) Hanukkah presents. 
The inside of the tribute card reads:  "A donation has been made to Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School."
