+ Fundraising Opportunities
The French American School of Denver is Denver’s only public school offering a tuition-free French immersion program. Because our school is unique, we require special staffing and materials to ensure that our students receive the highest quality and most comprehensive instruction.
However, we do not receive additional public funds to support the specialized resources we need to implement our rigorous curriculum. The shortfall between what DPS provides and what FASDenver needs is $1,500 per student. Direct Giving and Fundraisers truly make the difference!
FRENCH AMERICAN SCHOOL OF DENVER ANNUAL FUND
Like many other schools, the French American School of Denver, has established an
Annual Fund to help bridge this shortfall. We rely in part on the generosity of our
families and the community at large for support, and we can't thank you enough for
believing in the common goal of accessible quality immersion education for our children.
Every contribution counts, and no gift is too big or too small!
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 do not expect 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 see a high level of internal support,
they are also more likely to fund us.
By making a contribution, you are enriching the lives and education of the
students walking our halls. You are opening up a world of possibility and ensuring a
brighter future for them.
Ways to Participate/Give:
Give a one-time gift of $1,500 to “bridge the gap”
Set up a monthly donation, ranging from $5 per month to any amount you choose
Contribute to the “Changemakers Campaign” by bringing in your loose change
Secure a corporate match from your employer
Forward this link to grandparents (or other family and friends) so they can support their grandchild's stellar French immersion education
Consider a stock contribution for further tax benefits
