KSDS Giving Societies

KSDS honors its most generous supporters with inclusion in our giving societies, all of which place emphasis on tzedakah by recognizing donors with distinct benefits. All gifts to the KSDS Annual Campaign and gifts to the KSDS Scholarship Fund made to the school in an academic year (July 1-June 30) entitle a donor to full membership.

Please see below for our new society levels.  Be a key investor in the Tree of Life that makes it possible for Krieger Schechter to grow and thrive.  Members of all societies will receive an invitation to the Leadership Briefing and will be listed in the Annual Report and on our website.  Please contact Liz Minkin Friedman for information about benefit packages for specific Societies.
