Community Day School Love the learning, Live the Values 

Create your Jewish legacy 

Chances are you already give generously to the Pittsburgh Jewish charitable organizations of your choice. But have you considered including those organizations in your will, or as a beneficiary of your retirement fund, so you can continue to make a difference for generations to come? 

Community Day School is participating in the four-year Life & Legacy incentive program that is a collaboration between the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Pittsburgh. The goal is to preserve vibrant Jewish life for future generations by ensuring the long-term financial health of Jewish community organizations in Pittsburgh.

There are many different ways to leave your own legacy. And anyone can do this. You don't have to be wealthy—just committed to CDS and the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Whether you already have a will or are just getting started, it's always the right time to think about how you want to be remembered and what impact you can make.

Reflect on your Jewish passions. What is important to you about our faith and people? What community work do you want to support? Think about what impact you want to make? Then let us help you make it happen.

Maretsky Family

"David and I have been involved with Community Day School since its inception. As founders of the school, we have been so proud of its growth. We watched it grow from a K-2 program to a full Age 3 through 8th Grade curriculum. Our daughter and grandchildren have so greatly benefited by the strong academic curriculum and the nurturing and dedicated staff. Even more important is their strong Jewish identity and values. What wonderful mensches and caring people they are! CDS has well-prepared my grandchildren for higher academic learning success. They are independent thinkers, as well as leaders among their peers. They are willing give back to their community by volunteering their time for various organizations and projects. We want to pay forward all that CDS has done to enrich our family and to ensure future children the same opportunities. We are proud to support LIFE & LEGACY in Pittsburgh.”

— David and Carole Maretsky, CDS alumni grandparents
