+ Fundraising Opportunities
We are Denver's only public school which offers tuition-free French immersion. Because our school is unique, we require special staffing and materials to ensure the highest quality instruction.
The shortfall between what DPS provides and what FASDenver needs is $1,500 per student. This is why families who choose
Direct Giving or to host Fundraisers for our school make such a difference - not just in their own child's education, but in lifting the outlook for all students.
Please give as generously as you can.
FRENCH AMERICAN SCHOOL OF DENVER ANNUAL FUND
Like most public schools, the French American School of Denver has established an
Annual Fund to help bridge the shortfall. We ask you to direct your charitable dollars this year towards sustaining quality language immersion education for your children.
Is there an amount you can give which you won't miss? For many of us, the $1500 per person shortfall represents less than what we once paid monthly in daycare or preschool costs. Won't you consider donating at least that amount to child's education for the year? You'll be amazed at how far we can stretch your dollars!
FASDenver is a 501 C3 non-profit educational organization.
Our EIN Number is: 84-4652195. All donations are tax deductible.
Your gift enables us to:
Retain our highly specialized staff and provide supports;
Offer upgraded technology for our scholars;
Fund special projects (including playground additions); and
Provide ongoing teacher training and support.
While we understand that not 100% of our families to each give $1,500, we do hope 100% of
families will participate in some way. Our students and staff benefit every day from your
contributions of any size, and, when outside funders and grant organizations use the overall level of internal support as a key metric, making them more likely to fund us.
Ways to Participate/Give:
Give a one-time gift of $1,500 to “bridge the gap” for your child
Sponsor a one-time gift of $1500 for another child at the school
Set up a monthly donation, ranging from $5 per month upwards
Consider dedicating one more year of your former preschool / daycare or private school tuition dollars towards your child's public education.
Contribute to the “Changemakers Campaign” and bring in your loose change
