All current parents received an Annual Fund letter and a personalized challenge from me in their mailboxes.
This year, an inspired group of donors has stepped forward with a $50,000 challenge gift to launch our Annual Fund.
We've been challenged to secure 60 gifts at the Claremont Society level of $1,962 or more by October 17, 2019.
To meet the challenge, these gifts must be paid in full or coordinated through an automatic recurring monthly payment ($1,962/12 months = $163 per month) with the Advancement Office. We will celebrate Claremont Society donors on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, at Phantom Canyon Brewing Company. The combined effects of Claremont-level giving and the challenge gift will help us reach our Annual Fund goals.
In addition to the Claremont Challenge, we also want to hit 100% parent participation and the first class to reach 100% parent giving will receive a $250 grant to support a special class incentive.
We ask every current family to make a personally meaningful gift to the Annual Fund. No gift is too large or too small. Participation matters. Our faculty/staff and Board of Trustees have had 100% giving for many years, and it is important for parent participation to reach those numbers as we seek external donors and funding from grants. Many families make a commitment to an indefinite recurring credit card gift, which is automatically charged monthly (e.g., $25 per month X 12 months = $300 gift).
Gifts can be made in a variety of ways such as cash, check, and stock transfers - learn more about the options on the
Ways to Give
web page. Remember, unlike tuition, gifts are tax-deductible, and tremendous benefits are offered to donors, including the 50% tax credit offered through the
Colorado Childcare Tax Credit.
Thank you for considering a 2019-2020 Annual Fund gift that supports our innovative and student-centered programs, along with the many ways you contribute to the success of your child.
