Future-proof United Herzlia Schools by building the Endowment Fund to ensure that no Jewish child is denied a Jewish education for genuine financial reasons; and that Herzlia remains an affordable Jewish community school providing educational excellence with world-class facilities.


Make a real difference in the life of a Jewish child by donating to The Herzlia Foundation Trust. Your donation will assist in building the capital Endowment of the fund. The Endowment of The Herzlia Foundation Trust consists of the Bursary Fund; the Teachers Fund and the Capital Fund.


Bursary Fund

15% of Jewish pupils who attend Herzlia require financial support through Bursaries. Bursaries are funded from the income received from The Herzlia Foundation Trust’s Endowment, from an allocation received from the United Jewish Campaign (UJC) and from The Herzlia Foundation Trust’s fundraising efforts.

Through the Endowment, The Herzlia Foundation Trust aims to build its capital so that its income can cover the full cost of bursaries without drawing on its capital. It is important that you are aware that no full paying parents subsidize children who require a bursary and whilst there is a misconception that The Herzlia Foundation Trust is adequately funded, this is not true.

In 2020 the financial support and bursaries provided to Jewish children was in the region of R12.3 million, substantially more than the income generated by The Herzlia Foundation Trust.


Teachers Fund

Herzlia has over 250 dedicated and passionate educators across its 6 campuses. Funds generated from the Teachers Fund are used to attract and retain outstanding educators in order to ensure that Herzlia provides educational excellence and remains a world-class Jewish community school.


Capital Fund

The Capital Fund was created to assist United Herzlia Schools with major capital projects that require the schools to build and renovate campus facilities and/or school infastructure in the future.

Support United Herzlia Schools to remain a Jewish community school providing educational excellence.


  • Extension Programme
  • Inclusion Programme
  • Facilitators Fund

Our beneficiary United Herzlia Schools is a proudly inclusive school supporting children with both barriers to learning and those that require academic extension.

Herzlia recognizes that ‘education’ means the development of the whole child emotionally, socially, intellectually, physically and spirituality and designs their curriculum to include these aspects. Children make the most progress in an inclusive environment which respects everyone’s individual strengths and weaknesses. The Herzlia Foundation Trust supports the costs of providing inclusion in the schools by raising funds for facilities, equipment, testing & learning materials, educator training and facilitators.

United Herzlia Schools provides in classroom facilitators to many children in the Inclusion Programme. The Herzlia Foundation Trust raises funds for Jewish children who need financial assistance with this educational support. The annual cost for the Facilitators Fund is in the region of R 500 000 per annum. This is our greatest area of need within the Inclusion Programme.
