  • Why should I give?

    JCDS is your school – as a parent, former parent, grandparent, alumni or friend. Our school was founded to provide an exceptional learning environment and your contributions have helped make JCDS the leader in education that it is. The generosity of our community continues to ensure that our students and faculty have what they need to be a part of a transformational learning environment.
  • Who contributes?

    We are grateful for the support of parents, grandparents, alumni and friends who choose to take an active role in our school by investing in JCDS through their gifts to the JCDS Fund.
  • How much should I contribute?
