About our Fundraiser
Celebrate YAAANA’s fourth anniversary with us! In preparation for our expansion and plans for a physical home, we are making May and June our fundraising months. All donations made to YAAANA via Paypal or check are tax-deductible, and will be noted on the special page of our website dedicated to YAAANA's supporters in 2021. Between April 28 and July 11 give a gift in honor of your bube, mame, elter-bube - or any person you wish to honor through tzedoke. You can choose a particular goal to support: our annual programming (Intensive Yiddish Language and Culture Programs, curriculum development, and cultural events), further development of the newly-formed Yiddish Theater Academy, or creating a physical presence on the West Coast for Yiddishland California. Help YAAANA continue fostering Yiddish culture one student at a time - and make the impact of a lifetime. Please register for the Annual Zoom Fundraising Event with Broadway stars on July 11th, 2021!
