Giving helps our school community thrive

Philanthropic support from our community empowers Denver JDS to reach for the next level, explore new ideas, and create exceptional learning opportunities for our students. Together, we create a dynamic atmosphere of collaboration and support. There’s an excitement here, a liberating, exhilarating feeling that every day our students are inching closer to becoming the people they are meant to be.

Giving drives our vision for the future

Your charitable gifts enable Denver JDS to invest in our faculty and launch new program initiatives, while sustaining our exceptional curriculum so that each student is challenged to meet his/her intellectual potential. Your support also provides the flexibility and resources to ensure our school is accessible to all families who share our mission and Divrei Chaim (Words to Live By). Finally, we’re committed to continuing to deepen the engagement of our outreach beyond our walls. Giving empowers us to extend learning from the classroom to the community and continue to grow as a national model for elementary, middle and high school education.

Giving is who we are

We’re extraordinarily fortunate to have a community of great generosity, in which nearly all of our parents, trustees, faculty, and staff give gifts of time, talent, and financial resources every year. Our volunteerism and support of Denver JDS is a chance to model the power of community. We give because we want to show that we are invested in each other and our children. We want our children to learn about generosity and give back to their communities.
