Every year JDS relies on the Annual Fund for vital financial support. As with most independent schools across the country, tuition income does not fully cover the expense of a JDS education. Because JDS does not receive funding from any local, state or federal agencies, the financial difference is made up by charitable gifts from the wide range of families who attend JDS, school faculty and staff, alumni, grandparents, friends, foundations, corporations and community members.
Outstanding JDS volunteers drive our Annual Fund efforts each year! Last year (’15-16’) their hard work resulted in a record high of 100% Annual Fund parent participation! If you make only one gift to JDS during the 2016-2017 academic school year, please send it to the Annual Fund. Your pledge or gift eliminates continued solicitations throughout the school year. We're striving for a second year of 100% Annual Fund parent participation!
By making a gift to the JDS Annual Fund, you will help:
- Expand JDS’ outstanding inquiry academic program;
- Recruit and retain talented, energetic and committed educators;
- Provide financial assistance to deserving families;
- Strengthen and expand our enrichment and extra-curricular offerings;
- Care for our day school facilities;
- Maintain affordable tuition; and
- Much more!
We need the annual support of every member of our JDS community – parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends – to make all of these things possible. Every gift - no matter what the size - is significant.
Donation to the Annual Fund are 100% tax deductible, and we are happy to arrange a structured payment arrangement plan that is most convenient for you: monthly installments, credit card payments and/or billing upon your timeline. We ask that all Annul Fund donations be submitted to JDS by June 30, 2017.
