Legacy Society

Including Denver JDS in your estate plan is a lasting show of support.

When you include Denver JDS in your will, you add to the school’s legacy (hence the term Legacy Society). Help us grow our endowment and give future generations the opportunity to experience a pluralistic Jewish education.

In addition to personal satisfaction, legacy gifts offer major planning opportunities to minimize federal and state taxes — increasing the possibilities for effective distribution of assets. These gifts are popular estate-planning tools, as they offer a wide degree of flexibility and favorable tax benefits. When you're ready to make a beneficiary gift to Denver JDS, use our EIN number: 84-1476467. To learn more, contact Krista Boscoe, Director of Development, at 720-449-9552.

Build Your Jewish Legacy and Live On

Denver JDS is a participating agency in Live On IV, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation. As such, the school is eligible for additional grant money when new donors join the society and/or existing members provide additional details about their bequests.

To become a Legacy Society member, download and return our bequest card  or Donor Record form. You can also download our Families & Money form to help keep track of your important financial legal documents.

For Future Generations

"Our daughter, Shira, is thriving at Denver JDS and we couldn't be happier. By including the Legacy Society in our estate plans, we help ensure that future generations will have access to the same high quality education she is receiving. It also allows us to give more in the future than we are currently able to give. --Scott Miller & Mona Jacobson (Shira, class of 2023)

"Denver Jewish Day School is our community's portal to a bright future. As a teacher of over 21 years here, I have been privileged to study and exchange ideas with the men and women who will be, if they are not already, influential agents of change and innovation for an evolving Jewish world. My wife, Sue and I are proud to give back to what has been such a rewarding environment." --Rabbi Bernard Gerson
