Last year, the Telluride Education Foundation (TEF) launched the Telluride Compassion Campaign in an effort to raise funds for local schools and promote compassion, kindness, and gratitude during the Covid-19 pandemic. TEF successfully raised nearly $90K to assist the Telluride School District with pandemic-related needs such as additional staffing, PPE, and mental health support, as well as financial assistance to aid staff retention by funding master’s degrees, first-time home buying, childcare and commuting. Businesses got a boost too, with some funds earmarked for staff appreciation in the form of community dinners, faculty luncheons, staff wellness packages, and gift cards for local establishments.
This year the Telluride Compassion Campaign is also focused on “community building”. “It is critical for our community to find ways to reconnect, be social and share the love”, says Toni Nash, TEF President. Please consider donating to the Telluride Compassion Campaign and come together as locals, part-time homeowners and visitors who all share a passion for Telluride. If you live, work, or play in Telluride…you are part of our community!
We are asking you and the entire community to show your Telluride pride and support by making a gift, donating your time, and/or spreading the word about the Telluride Compassion Campaign.
