One of the great privileges of working in early childhood education is the sacred opportunity to witness the enormous range of growth and development that occurs in our students over their years at Becker. As described in one of our favorite Shabbat songs, My Roots Grow Deep, Becker students start as a tiny seed. Over the next four years, our master gardeners (aka teachers) nourish each seed to develop deep roots, a strong trunk, branches that reach for the sky, leaves that dance, and fruits that give. We are so grateful that you entrust your child’s social, emotional, spiritual, and educational development to Becker. Every child deserves access to a Becker education; but, each year we receive roughly $80,000 in tuition assistance requests. The Becker Scholarship Fund helps us fill these requests, and we need your support to ensure we can help those who need it.
We do not want the cost of tuition to ever to be a reason that a family cannot send their child to Becker. Not only does the Becker Scholarship Fund provide support for families in the Houston community, but it also helps cover tuition for students that are in Houston temporarily while a family member is receiving treatment in our outstanding medical center.
During the upcoming holiday of Tu B’Shevat or “New Year of the Trees” and in honor of our growing seeds, please consider donating to the Becker Scholarship Fund. Maximize the impact of your donation by giving and asking your children’s family members to give as well!
We teach your children about Tzedakah, or the act of charitable giving, every week when students are encouraged to donate one penny during our joyful Friday Shabbat services. Help us help those in our Becker community who need it most. Our goal is 100% parent participation by February 15, 2023, and no gift is too small.
Please join us in our effort to ensure that every tiny seed can receive a Becker education.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
