Your generous support ensures that students will continue to receive an exceptional educational experience rooted in core Jewish values and devoted to academic excellence. Our integrated learning program, STEAM mindset, and whole child education, fosters curiosity, critical thinking, individuality, and community. We empower our students to become lifelong learners who positively impact the world around them.

These experiences are only partially provided for by the tuition paid by our families.

The remainder is made up of support from KJDS parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, faculty, and staff.

Whether you are an individual, corporation, or foundation, there are several ways to support KJDS. Please see below for the many ways your philanthropy can help KJDS continue to serve our students and community.

Capital gifts are an investment in KJDS’ future. These gifts support brick-and-mortar building projects such as adding to our current building and renovating it to best meet the needs of our students. Capital campaign gifts are usually paid over three to five years.

These funds provide financial support that KJDS can rely on for many years and may be designated to support an area that is meaningful to you. New endowment funds may be created beginning with a $10K gift or more. These funds can be directed to support an area that captures your interest and may also be named in honor or memory of an individual. KJDS is pleased to accept donations of any size to support existing endowment funds.

Make a tribute gift to celebrate, honor, or memorialize someone in your life. A tribute is a thoughtful way to honor a simcha (a happy occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah) or send condolences to those who have lost a loved one.
