COLORADO GIVES DAY
Each year, all of Colorado comes together to give to organizations that mean so much to our community. This year marks the 20th Year of Compass Montessori and CMEF is dedicated to keeping our school financially strong as we look towards another 20 years. We need your commitment with donations to CMEF to support that vision. Those donations go directly back into the community in areas of greatest need. This year our Direct Give Campaign asks for you to give what you can to Compass Montessori Education Foundation. Our challenge for this special year is to ask you to give a one time $20 donation, a $20 monthly donation or up your yearly donation by 20%. You can donate online through Colorado Gives or you can mail/drop off a check at school.
It is our heartfelt plea for your help in providing an excellent public Montessori education for your child and others. As you think about what you might do this year, here are some things to keep in mind.
In the past school year, CMEF invested $120,000 that went towards many important enhancements for our school.
- Our Wheat Ridge Campus just opened a state of the art Kitchen that provides healthy, homemade meals to our students.
- Our Golden Campus is growing into a new mobile classroom that serves many purposes for multiple levels. Extra space is always a plus.
- Teachers from both campus’s completed many different Montessori and specialty training sessions like math, special ed, state licensing and more. With their own time and money (aided by CMEF funds), these dedicated teachers spent evenings, weekends and summers away from home to become certified at the Children’s House, Elementary and Adolescent levels. Training one teacher elevates the skills of the whole staff, as teachers come back from training and share what they learn to benefit all.
- Golden and Wheat Ridge campus’s received much needed security upgrades that included camera’s, door enhancements, intercom systems and a wireless boost.
Please consider a one-time or recurring gift to the Compass Montessori Education Foundation. Our goal is to have every family giving to CMEF—even a few dollars lets the school know you are on board. A gift of any size demonstrates your belief in our children, our faculty and our community.
Giving is easy. You can donate online through Colorado Gives or you can mail/drop off a check at school. If you donate on December 4th, the Colorado Community First foundation will make an additional donation based on the money raised.
On behalf of the CMEF board, I sincerely thank you for your consideration.
