AVI CHAI concluded its general grant making on December 31, 2019.

Incubating New Schools with a Blended Learning Model

The AVI CHAI Foundation awards grants to new schools that are or will be using online/blended learning as a core part of their educational model for both educational and cost-saving reasons. These grants provide consultation with blended learning experts, while subsequent grants support their general operating expenses. Three schools are being supported currently: Yeshivat He’atid: Bergen County, NJ; Grades Pre-K-3; Harkham GAON Academy: Los Angeles, CA; Grades 9-12; Bader Hillel High: Milwaukee, WI; Grades 9-12. Each school approaches blended learning differently but with the concept of personalized learning at the core.
In supporting these new schools, The AVI CHAI Foundation hopes to establish proof points for the excellent educational and financial model that blended learning promises. All the schools are priced at least one-third below the average day school in their community. They project reaching financial sustainability by year four or five when they reach the enrollment they need to break even. The AVI CHAI Foundation’s philanthropic support will assist them toward reaching that point.
