The JSFoundation is both an operating and grantmaking program. Our investments back into our schools and classrooms and to our Principals, teachers and students is directly dependent on the community philanthropy and those who believe in the value and benefit of public education. Our appeal is that you support us in connecting the community to the varied and many needs facing our classrooms and students and that you invest in the Foundation to steward these funds on behalf of our students. As trusted partners with the Education Center, Principals and Schools, the JSFoundation is uniquely positioned to understand the gaps financial and programmatic gaps facing our students. Our vision is that every Jeffco student has a bright future through supporting student learning and proficiency, professional learning of our educators, provision of basic needs for our students, supporting the availability of the arts, and supporting career pathway preparedness and readiness for our students.
Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.
You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
