Annual Fund

As with most independent schools across the country, tuition income does not fully cover the expense of a JDS education. We count on annual support from all members of our community – parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends- to make our program possible. Every gift, no matter the amount, is significant. 

By making a gift to the JDS Annual Fund, you will help:

  • Expand JDS’s outstanding academic inquiry program.
  • Recruit and retain talented, energetic, and committed educators.
  • Provide financial assistance.
  • Strengthen and expand our enrichment and extracurricular offerings, including environmental education and our annual eighth grade trip to Israel.
  • Maintain affordable tuition.
  • Much more!

Donations to the JDS Annual Fund are tax-deductible as allowable by the law, and we are happy to arrange a monthly payment plan or handle your stock transfer. If your employer participates in corporate matching, please let us know. We ask that all JDS Annual Fund payments be submitted to JDS by June 1, 2024.

Please contact our Development Office at or 425-460-0221 for more information. Thank you for supporting the JDS Annual Fund!
