KIPP Colorado Schools
KIPP Colorado is a local network of open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools. Our mission is to equip underserved students with the academic skills and character traits necessary to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond. We serve nearly 1,000 low-income, ethnic minority students and over 360 KIPP alumni. Approximately 95% of our students live below the poverty line, and 50% of our students are English Language Learners. KIPP Colorado students come to us an average of two grade levels behind and spend 60% more time in the classroom. Public school per-pupil funding covers only 87% of our budget, and annually we seek to raise nearly $1,500 per student. Your support allows our students to have a longer school day and additional programming. With an extended school day and year, and a strong culture of achievement, KIPP is proving what is possible in public education. Thank you for your support of our students as they climb the mountain to and through college!
Colfax Marathon Double Whammyby Carol Maclennan
There's nothing better than getting great outdoor exercise at the Marathon while raising money for EarthLinks, my perfect storm of a non-profit. EarthLinks' twin goals are restoring people and the planet .
EarthLinks builds community with Individuals who have experienced homelessness and want to bring positive change into their lives. They do this as they connect with the earth and each other while gardening, keeping bees, and learning or sharing skills to craft beautiful and useful products from the harvest. Product sales support the program and provide participants a stipend. .
The EarthLinks community is a joyful one that inspires hope. Your donation to my Colfax Marathon campaign will help this worthy, local social enterprise continue to transform lives and nurture the earth.
