Dear Telluride School District Families,

Welcome back to another great year! We would like to re-introduce ourselves…

TEF 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 and support teacher magnet grants that encourage teacher retention. These initiatives fall outside the scope of our school system’s normal operating budget. 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. Please join us in meeting our mission while having fun and making new friends along the way!

TEF is also part of a fundraising program called AmazonSmile. This is an easy way to help support your schools. Here’s how it works: You shop. Amazon gives. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to TEF. Just scroll to the top of this page and click SHOP. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know, with the added benefit of supporting charitable organizations. Please help support our Telluride School District with every Amazon purchase you make!

This year, included in this packet, are notices regarding our:

  • TEF Volunteer Opportunities & Committee/Fundraising Event Descriptions
  • TEF eNewsletter
  • TEF First Meeting Notice

All of these notices can be found on our website,

If you are interested in volunteering or if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please contact a board member.

Thank you so much for your continued support. We look forward to a great year!

Best Regards,

The 2019-2020 TEF Board
