Annual Appeal

Help us get to the core of educating Jewish youth

The Denver JDS annual appeal supports:

  • classroom technology
  • field trips
  • faculty continuing education
  • tuition assistance
  • more

Our 2014-15 Annual Appeal kicks off September 9 with our annual school-wide Apple Walk, and runs through the end of June -- because our students and school need financial support for the entire school year. Thank you in advance for supporting Denver JDS.

Donate Today

You can give online 24/7, or contact Brandi Pelz, Assistant Director of Development for more options.

Every Gift Counts

Whether you can give $36 or $36,000, a tax-deductible donation to Denver JDS makes an important difference.

The higher participation rate we can demonstrated from parents, grandparents and community members, the more success we have securing additional funding from corporations and foundations. Our goal is 100% parent participation, 100% faculty participation, and healthy grandparent and community participation.

I give to Denver JDS because I fully believe in our mission and think it’s a great way to show school spirit. – Kaitlin Hahn, Upper Division Social Studies

My donation is an investment in our kids’ futures. I give because I feel strongly about leading by example. Technology is such an integral part of children’s learning! I want the children in my classroom to have access to the latest in technology. –Beth Saunders, Kindergarten

I want to give back to a community that has been very generous and welcoming to me. –Ken Miller, 5th Grade

I first realized the importance of giving to the school while being interviewed by Rose Community Foundation. During the interview, I learned that outside granting agencies use employee giving rates as part of their evaluation of nonprofit organizations. That’s what started the habit. Now, it’s one more way I can give back and be part of the community. –Melanie Knowles, Upper Division Science
