The Amos and Celia Heilicher Minneapolis Jewish Day School has received a $9 million grant over ten years from the Lynne & Andrew Redleaf Foundation, the largest single gift in the school’s 33-year history.

Heilicher alumni parents and philanthropists Lynne and Andrew Redleaf provided the ten-year grant for the purpose of making a Heilicher education financially accessible to more families. The Redleaf Affordability & Endowment Building Challenge Grant primarily will support tuition relief, including the establishment of a tuition reduction grant for children of professionals working at Jewish nonprofit organizations in the Twin Cities. A portion of the gift is designated as a “matching grant” to help launch the school’s upcoming endowment campaign.
