Be part of the solution

Your contribution helps your community: Colorado’s public schools have been chronically under funded for decades. Everyone, not just parents, has a stake in public school success. With strong schools and successful students, everyone benefits.

In 2016-2017, the Education Foundation of Eagle County – E•ƒ(ec), is enriching the lives of more than 7,000 K-12 students and 1,100 school district employees in Eagle County, Colorado with essential educator funds for literacy teachers, counselors, STEAM and STEM materials, arts and music enrichment and more. Donate today and you can be a part of the solution in the classroom this school year.

Kids playing guitars

“Thank you E•ƒ(ec)! Because of you, Red Sandstone Elementary students now have enough new 3/4 size guitars so that EVERY child has one to play for a more enriching music classroom experience. Brain studies have shown that children who study music have improved scores in both reading and math. Playing guitar builds a sense of community, feeds emotional wellbeing and provides a lifelong skill. Thank you to all of you who made this possible!”

Student at computer

“Creating links through technology bridges gaps between learners. Bridging gaps creates unity. Thank you E•ƒ(ec) for recognizing the opportunity to support and strengthen our school communities with this social-awareness building and career-oriented technology. We are very excited to launch our new project, Eagle Valley High School - SMART Technologies Education Program (EVHS-STEP)”

Students in science class

“At Eagle Valley High School, we are dedicated to aligning student interests into successful career pathways. With our new biotechnology equipment, graciously provided by E•ƒ(ec) and Vail Valley Medical Center, our students can engage in a real world application of medical lab procedures and find their way from high school to a career in health and medicine.”

Teacher and students on math class

“We are elated! The E•ƒ(ec) grant will help our June Creek Elementary students tremendously by providing the support they need to be successful with grade-level math content. As our approach to teaching math evolves we want our students to be prepared to tackle math at each level in addition to foundational math skills. This grant will ensure our students have what they need to succeed!”
