As a 501(c)(3) organization, the District 51 Foundation (D51F) raises funds for academic growth and achievement while promoting outreach to benefit kids and our community.

It's time for Stuff the Bus!

Stuff the Bus has been supporting our students for over 20 years.  Many of our D51 students can't afford to purchase school supplies.  Started by Townsquare Media, Stuff the Bus has partnered with Mesa Mall, D51 Foundation, and D51 Schools to help provide much needed school supplies.

2021 Stuff the Bus

2021 Alpine Best with FDIC
Alpine Bank has generously donated $50,000 to the D51 Foundation to provide grants specifically to be used by D51 teachers, principals, and counselors 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.
