The Cherry Creek Schools Foundation is dedicated to:
Impacting ALL of our district's students
Investing in innovation in the classroom
Providing opportunities for every student to achieve their best
The Cherry Creek Schools Foundation, founded in 1992 as a 501c (3) Non-Profit, connects our community to the Cherry Creek School District by identifying resources and partnerships that result in IMPACT through INNOVATIVE programs and meaningful educational OPPORTUNITIES for all students and educators. Since its inception, CCSF has awarded over 1,000 Educator Initiative Grants that fund the work of classroom teachers who ensure that all of our students are prepared for an ever-changing world. The Foundation has raised more than $8.5 million for groundbreaking educational programs that have touched all of our schools and students. From elementary school literacy programs, to middle school engineering programs, to high school ethics programs, the Foundation financially backs ideas that get results across all curriculums and grade levels.
The Foundation relies on you and continues to build long-term relationships with you as business leaders and individuals who know that investing in our students is important for our future. CCSF's funding affects all students within the district by supporting the growth and diversity of our community and embracing students' broad range of multicultural and socio-economic needs. The Cherry Creek Schools Foundation supports the mission of the Cherry Creek School District: To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve and to care.
"When the community donates to the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation, they are providing opportunities for our students to succeed by offering grants and funding to teachers and schools to support in areas of literacy, internet access, special projects, hands-on resources, and more. Cherry Creek Schools Foundation is an integral partner for our school & community engagement!" - Sybil Booker, Assistant Principal at Overland High School
"When COVID first started, I found myself in a rough spot when I had to run from my abusive husband. I was able to get help through the foundation and was able to get into a hotel. I was given some gift cards that allowed me to feed my two boys. I was also given a hot spot so that the boys could do their school work. Without the funds for food and the hotel, my kids and I would have been forced to live in my car. Today, I am happy to say that I have found stable housing, and my boys and I are very thankful! - Violette, CCSD Parent
"The foundation serves to not only strengthen our schools but to also strengthen our community. I give to the foundation because I want to support the needs of all kids and create opportunities for our teachers to innovate in the classroom and to reimagine the learning journey for their students." - Valencia Culbreath, CCSD Parent & CCSF Board Member
"It has been a struggle for my kiddos with accessing the internet. We are very grateful to be able to have gotten one of these internet hotspots thanks to the Foundation."
-Thelma, CCSD Parent
