Reuben Gittelman Hebrew Day School Chooses Industry-Leading Software Plus Fundraising PROTM for Powerful Communication Tools and Development Capabilities
#1 Web-Based School Management Software Has Added More Than 600 Schools Over Last Two Years
January 24, 2008 - RenWeb, the industry leader in next-generation, web-based school management software, today announced the addition of its milestone 1000th school, Reuben Gittelman Hebrew Day School, a 265-student, pre-K through 8th grade school in New City, NY that is a member of the Solomon Schechter Day School Association (SSDSA).
In addition to purchasing RenWeb’s school management software, the school will also purchase RenWeb’s Fundraising PRO fundraising software to track pledges and gifts and to communicate more systematically and effectively with its donor base. Alumni tracking and programming will be made easier with the new software as well.
Rabbi Scott Bolton, Head of Reuben Gittelman Hebrew Day School, said, “We switched to RenWeb because it is a great tool for any school that wants to organize and improve its communication capabilities. Communication between home and school is an essential ingredient for spurring students onto success. Additionally, RenWeb and Fundraising PRO integrate student, family and alumni information in the school database with the constituents in the fundraising database, creating a large group of donors with whom we can communicate to inspire what we call ‘righteous giving’ that allows our school to continue to achieve its goals and mission.”
Continued Rabbi Bolton, “RenWeb is also very open to meeting our needs as a Jewish school. Specifically, they will work with us to develop report cards that will allow us to highlight all the student achievement in our curricular areas including our rigorous Hebrew language and Judaic studies as well as the enriched general studies based on the New York state standards.”
RenWeb’s CEO Brad Lee stated, “The addition of Reuben Gittelman Hebrew Day School as the 1000th member of our family underscores the variety of schools we serve and our ability to tailor RenWeb to meet their needs, as well as confirms the unmatched power of the communication tools and tracking information available in both RenWeb and Fundraising PRO.”
Lee added, “Our speed in achieving the 1000-school mark and becoming the undisputed industry leader is not only a testament to the vision of our founder, Bob Wilbers, to revolutionize school management with a web-based program that integrates more than 150 features for one low price, but also to the dedication and professionalism of our 80-member sales and support teams who provide unparalleled service to our members. The excellence of our product and our team is why we’re not only adding schools at an astounding rate, but retaining an outstanding 98 percent of our members over the last 8 years.”
