To meet our fundraising goals we rely on the generosity of community-minded individuals and businesses for support. We hope you will include us in your gifting plans. Telluride Education Foundation directly funds the following initiatives when they fall outside the scope of our school’s operating budget:

  • Experiential education (mindfulness programs, physical education equipment, book clubs, field trips, & more)
  • Support for the drama, music, fine arts, and athletic programs
  • The cost of bringing artists / professionals / authors to the schools
  • Supplemental materials for classrooms
  • Magnet Grants – awarded to teachers and paraprofessionals to assist them with expenses for first-time home buying, childcare, commuting, and Master’s degrees
  • Teacher appreciation events
  • Films/Speaker Series regarding social-emotional education for parents, students, teachers, coaches, and the community
