Aleph Bet Jewish Day School in Annapolis received $472 from the Great Give fundraiser.

The fundraiser, a 24-hour online effort in its second year, raised more than $675,000 for more than 150 nonprofits in Anne Arundel County.

Aleph Bet Jewish Day School was gifted $472 from 18 donors.

“The goal of the Great Give is to raise awareness of local charities [and] generate mission-critical operating funds from their current donors, while showing them to new donors,” a news release said.

School officials could not be reached for comment.

According to its website, Aleph Bet has been operational more than 20 years.

“Small classes and caring, qualified teachers produce graduates who are compassionate, competent and confident — ready to meet the challenges of secondary school and to contribute to their communities,” the school’s website said.

Last year, the Great Give raised $606,000 from more than 2,700 donors for 118 nonprofits.

The fundraiser, which was produced by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County and sponsored by Maryland Live! Casino, ran from 6 p.m. on May 7 to 6 p.m. on May 8. Representatives from participating nonprofits celebrated the results at the Great Give Countdown Party and Rams Head Center Stage at the casino on May 8, where the final tally of funds was revealed.
