Giving Opportunities


JDS has several giving opportunities available for your convenience. In fact, it's almost effortless to leverage your giving to JDS through some of these easy and convenient giving methods. Thank you for your generous support.

Cash, Check or Credit Card Donations
Cash or check donations to school can be made payable to:

The Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle

Company Matching Gifts
Many companies match gifts made to non-profit organizations. JDS has a list of companies that match gifts to educational establishments and your employer may be included. Sometimes, JDS does not know if a company matches charitable gifts. Please let us know if your employer should be added to JDS’ list of generous philanthropic supporters. Leverage your giving to JDS through your company’s matching gifts program. It’s simple! Questions? Please contact Julie Chivo at This email address is being protected from spambots.

JDS is grateful to receive support from families and community members who recognize life cycle events or send memorial tributes through JDS. Tribute donations provide funding for school programs and faculty development opportunities. A personalized acknowledgement of your contribution will be sent to the honoree or to the family of the person you are memorializing through our JDS Development Office. Please click here to make a tribute or call 425-460-0231.

Appreciated Stock
Gifts of appreciated assets (such as stock) may, through their tax-advantaged status, allow a donor to make an even greater impact on school programs than would be possible by writing a check. Some of our larger gifts to the Annual Fund, as well as substantial targeted gifts, come in this form. If you have shares of corporate stock you would like to donate, JDS would be happy to assist you with the transaction. For assistance, please contact Anna Brown at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
