Dear Families and Friends of STEM School Highlands Ranch,
STEM Gives! is the easiest fundraiser you've ever done and it only takes a minute.
Our goal is to raise $75,000 for STEM School Highlands Ranch. 100% of the money is used to support our school. Your contribution is not split with any fundraising vendors and you don't have to help your child sell anything!
$200 per family or $20 per month
We are suggesting that every STEM family donate $200 one time or about $20 per month. STEM PTO is a chapter of the Foundation for Douglas County Schools which is a 501(c)3 organization so your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Friends and family can make donations as well.
You can give a one time or a monthly donation with your credit card, debit card or through your bank account. If you prefer to mail a check, please email DonateSTEMPTO@gmail.com to find out how.
Where does the money go?
100% of funds raised from this campaign go directly to STEM PTO for the support of STEM School Highlands Ranch. The funds will provide classroom enrichment through our teacher's grants and help fund many other requests by our STEM School.
Investing in your children's future…
We know you get solicitations from many worthy nonprofits. This is the only one that directly affects the education of your children. As parents, we invest in our children's future every day. Financially investing in their education can help pave their way to a successful path in life.
You can double your donation! As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, STEM PTO is a chapter of the Foundation for Douglas County Schools and qualifies for corporate matching. If your company matches donations, use this Tax ID number: 84-1165175 and please email us at DonateSTEMPTO@gmail.com with the employee name, company name and the amount so that we can track the corporate match.
Thank you for taking a minute to ensure STEM School Highlands Ranch continues to be an exceptional school.
