"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)

Including Denver JDS with a gift in your will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy is a lasting show of support.

When you include Denver JDS with a planned gift, you add to the school’s legacy. 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. A gift planned through one's will is perhaps the best known and most widely understood planned gift arrangement. An unrestricted bequest is especially appreciated as it can be put to immediate use wherever the school's needs are greatest.

"Denver Jewish Day School is our community's portal to a bright future. As a teacher of 24 years at Denver JDS 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, former Upper Division Judaics studies teacher
