Endowments and Special Funds

Securing our future for generations to come


Endowment funds provide permanent financial support that MJDS can rely on year after year. These funds ensure that MJDS will be able to maintain long-term financial stability, provide affordable tuition and continue to attract outstanding faculty and staff. Your gift to Milwaukee Jewish Day School Endowment Funds will grow into an enduring legacy for our students.

These funds may be designated to support an area that best captures each donor's interest – faculty professional development, financial aid, academic enrichment, etc. Endowments are established legally as independent funds, and their financial returns are reviewed each year. As a result, MJDS has established policies to help avoid creating funds that incur costs while yielding minimal benefit. At present, a named endowment fund may be created with a minimum of $20,000.

MJDS is pleased to accept donations in any amount to existing endowment funds. These gifts will be used to supplement the principle of an existing fund that is in keeping with the donor’s priority of choice.
