Jeffco Schools Foundation & Outdoor Lab Foundation Partner to Seek Community Support #GivingTuesdayNow
Tuesday, May 5 is the new Giving Tuesday, created in response to COVID-19.
The Jeffco Schools Foundation and the Outdoor Lab Foundation are key partners to Jeffco Public Schools. Our District serves 84,000 students across 155 schools. Our Foundations support students throughout our District in a variety of ways. We are partnering to share an opportunity for you to support us on May 5 – Giving Tuesday! On this global day of giving we need your support to continue to support our students, schools, and our District. We appreciate any support you are able to offer at this time.
Students need a variety of experiences and support to access learning fully, to grow as individuals, and to thrive as members of our community for generations to come.
Jeffco Schools Foundation supports students, families, and schools by providing quality learning experiences and, most recently, in direct support of more than 1,500 students across nearly 40 schools – and counting – who have been adversely and severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This support ensures students and their families have access to essential needs such as food, gas, medication, and cleaning supplies. This support also provides those students internet access so they can engage in remote learning. Please support us so we can continue to help our students and families.
Outdoor Lab Foundation provides every Jeffco student a week-long immersive learning experience at the Mount Evans and Windy Peak Outdoor Lab schools. Students come home with a greater understanding of stewardship of self, others, and the environment. With more than 385,000 alumni benefitting from 63 years of programming, Outdoor Lab is unique and vital in the Jefferson County community. Outdoor Lab Foundation will still be here for our students on the other side of this pandemic. Support from community members like you will ensures we continue to have the resources to provide this invaluable, life-changing experience. Please help us continue this core Jeffco rite of passage.
Together, Jeffco Schools Foundation and Outdoor Lab Foundation provide remarkable and meaningful supports and experiences to our students, educators, and schools. We hope that you will consider supporting one or both of our organizations if you are able.
In partnership and with gratitude,
Paige and Angela
