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.

To become a member of our Legacy Society, download the Declaration of Commitment form, and you can also dowload and fill out the Legacy Gift Confirmation Form. You can also download our Families & Money form to help keep track of your important financial legal documents.

When you're ready to make a beneficiary gift to Denver JDS, please inform your legal or financial advisor that the school’s legal name is Denver Jewish Day School, 2450 S. Wabash St., Denver, CO 80231. Our EIN number is 84-1476467.

Denver JDS is proud to host exclusive events for our most valued donors. This winter, members of our Legacy Society enjoyed a private tour of the Denver Art Museum's Rembrandt Painter as Printmaker exhibit, guided by co-curator Dr. Timothy J. Standring. 

Thank you for offering this unique opportunity to visit the Rembrandt exhibit at the Denver Art Museum and hear from the perspective and expertise of the curator.  It was a delightful and educational opportunity and I am honored to be a member of this group! — Bonnie Merenstein (Denver JDS grandparent, Legacy Society member, and Chai Five Club member)
