Fundraising Matters

It is not what one says, but rather what one does that makes all the difference in the world. – Pirke Avot

All private schools rely on fundraising as an integral part of their operating budget. At Denver JDS, tuition accounts for $3.7 million of the school’s operating budget. The remaining $.1.1 million comes from fundraising.

When you give to Denver JDS, you are helping maintain and grow a Jewish educational institution that delivers an academically demanding, college preparatory education rooted in Jewish history, ethics and principles.

Each year, the development team operates our annual appeal, multi-year giving society (Chai 5 Club), online auction, annual dinner, and other fundraising efforts — giving parents, alumni, and community members a variety of different ways to support our school.
