WHO WE ARE

Telluride Education Foundation is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that raises money to invest in the enrichment of K-12 education in the Telluride School District. Specifically, we raise funds for experiential learning initiatives in and out of the classroom, support teacher magnet grants that encourage teacher retention, and provide social-emotional education for the community.

We have awarded over $500,000 since our inception and currently support the 900+ students and approximately 90 teachers in the Telluride School District with our various granting programs.

DID YOU KNOW?

Because of the Gallagher Amendment, TABOR and Amendment 23, Colorado School Funding has been under pressure for years.

Colorado will not fund TSD by $1,291 per student this school year due to the “Budget Stabilization Factor”.

Colorado ranked 39th in state funding for education in 2015; $2,147 or 19% below average per student.

In 2015 Telluride spent 14.4% less per student, adjusted for inflation than in 2010.

As a result Telluride Education Foundation seeks grant dollars and donations from the businesses and individuals in our community. We also host a variety of fund raising events throughout the year.
