Ways to Support JCDSRI

Our capacity to respond to the ever-changing needs of our students, their families, and the broader Jewish community of Greater Rhode Island would not be possible without generous donor support. Thank you for joining us as we work together to ensure a strong future for our children – and for our community.Click on these links to learn more about Endowment Gifts, Tribute Gifts or Legacy Giving.


Please consider giving to our Annual Fund, which ensures that we are able to enhance our innovative educational programs, provide scholarships to our families, support teacher development, and increase our outreach efforts. A gift to our Annual Fund is a vote of confidence not only in the value of a Jewish day school education, but demonstrates a strong commitment to the vibrancy and sustainability of the greater Rhode Island Jewish community. 


Giving to JCDSRI’s  Endowment ensures the long-term financial security of our school. Endowed funds are invested in perpetuity, with only the income they generate spent each year.  This helps JCDSRI contain tuition increases while providing excellent programs and substantial scholarships. Support for the endowment can be made through outright cash gifts, multi-year pledges, or planned gifts in the form of bequests, life insurance, annuities, and other future interests.


Honor or memorialize a friend or family member with a JCDSRI tribute gift. We kindly suggest a donation of $36; donations of $18 or more will be acknowledged by a personalized card to the recipient. Make a tribute gift here.


A Legacy Gift provides an everlasting connection between you and JCDSRI for the benefit of future generations. Establishing a legacy gift or an endowment guarantees that your annual gift and your connection to JCDSRI is sustained in perpetuity. A legacy gift not only reflects your commitment to JCDSRI, but encourages other family members to prioritize philanthropy as well. There are many ways to make a Legacy Gift, including a bequest in your will, or designating JCDSRI as a beneficiary of your IRA, retirement plan account, or life insurance policy.
