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.

The State of Colorado is withholding $1,752.68 per student in the current school year (2020-21) due to the budget stabilization factor. This translates to a loss of funding of $1.6 million this year alone to the Telluride School District.

The Telluride School District expects to operate at a $1.5 million deficit this year due to expenses required to host in-person student learning in the COVID-19 era and a loss of revenues.
