The Annual Fund   
 
When you give to the Annual Fund, you are supporting every aspect of a student's education at The Colorado Springs School. You are helping us fulfill our mission of preparing student's for a dynamic world.
 
Update on the Goal     
 
We only need EIGHT more Claremont Society level gifts to secure the challenge of reaching 60 Claremont level donations of $1,962 or more by tomorrow (Thursday, October 17, 2019). If we you can join us in making a gift we will earn a $50,000 challenge gift! Better yet, let's exceed the goal and propel the Annual Fund closer to its budgeted goal.  
 
Every gift at every level moves us closer to high levels of parent participation and filling the gap between the cost of tuition and the true cost of a CSS education. Which class will have the highest class participation? Right now, the 5th grade, Class of 2027, is leading the way in parent participation percentages.  
 
Many of you have already generously donated or pledged to the Annual Fund.  
Thank you!
 
If you can't meet the Thursday deadline...don't worry, every day is a good day to make a gift to the school. We accept gifts 365 days a year.  
 
Leveraging the Colorado Childcare Tax Credit to Make a Bigger Gift! 

When you  make a donation to The Colorado Springs School through the Colorado Childcare Contribution Credit, you can reduce your Colorado taxes by 50%. The state of Colorado allows you to take a 50% tax credit on your state income taxes in addition to the regular state and federal deductions.
