As a 501c3 organzation, the District 51 Foundation (D51F) raises funds for academic growth and achievement while promoting outreach, to benefit kids and community.
In Partnership with the Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF) and the generosity of a few special donors, we have created a D51 Foundation Endowment!
What does this mean? It means that families can now leave Memorial Gifts and leave us in their Estate Plans, helping our organization support improved student learning in perpetuity. An endowment is a fund structured so that the principal amount is kept intact while the investment income is available for use by the organization. It is different than donating to our General Operating Budget, where funds are used in a timely manner for direct services for the School District 51, such as funds for Technology.
By working with the Western Colorado Community Foundation, which serves in this capacity for seven West Slope counties, we are able to rely on their expertise in investment and management. Many recognize WCCF as the best vehicle for managing charitable legacy gifts to have a long-term positive impact in our community. Please call 254-5108 for more information and to engage with this wonderful opportunity.
