Benefit Dinners

Not your standard fundraiser.
We learn and get inspired while we raise the funds to reach more students. 

There’s a seat at the table for you!

Come join us and other educators, students, upstanders and change-makers for a night of inspiration and learning at one of our regional annual Benefit Dinners. With your help, we can raise critical funds that help combat racism, antisemitism, and prejudice while nurturing democracy through education.
