2021 Alpine Best with FDIC

Alpine Bank has generously donated $50,000 to the D51 Foundation to provide grants to D51 teachers, principals, and counselors specifically to be used to support Social Emotional Learning needs.

Grants range in all amounts: small needs and large! 
Two $25,000 rounds will provide immediate support for those who need it the most. 
We've included links in the four categories to help guide you in deciding what might be best for your classroom support. We've provided a list of ideas for grants, but you're not restricted to these suggestions. Grants can be used for classroom SEL supplies as well as professional learning for teachers.

2020 21st Century Big Check

The D51 Foundation just donated over $18K to outfit six D51 classrooms as "21st Century Digital Classrooms." This is an exciting new way to support in person and remote learning through technology now that we've realized our goal of helping to achieve a 1:1 ratio of students to Chromebooks! Thank you for your support! Our new focus for technology donations will help our students stay competitive by providing cutting edge technology that enhances learning both inside and outside the classroom. As we celebrate our 10th Birthday this year, we invite you to stand with us and consider joining us by making a donation- as little as $10- to support the purchase of more technology in honor of your favorite D51 student. Our funding priorities are technology for students and professional learning for teachers. To join our effort click here.
