Legacy Society

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.

Ways to Give

Contribute to Denver Jewish Day School’s future by planning for a special gift, such as a bequest in your will, life insurance, or more. There are many creative and flexible planned giving options that can benefit you and our organization.

Denver JDS is proud to host exclusive events for our most valued donors. On March 11, 2022, Dr. Timothy J. Standring, curator emeritus for the DAM, gave a behind-the-scenes tour of Whistler to Cassatt: American Painters in France.  The exhibit featured nearly 150 paintings made between 1855 and 1913 in the first comprehensive examination of France’s stylistic impact on American painting of the period.  Timothy explained that it took him eight years to make arrangements to borrow the artwork from museums and private collections around the world and all the work that went into arranging the pieces to present a masterful exhibit.  

From academic training in Paris to the exploration of the countryside landscape, Whistler to Cassatt reveals both the visual and conceptual influences of France on American painters in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. 

The exhibition has now traveled to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, opening April 16 to July 31, 2022.  Denver and Virginia are the only two locations for this exhibit.
