Cherry Creek Schools Foundation Endowment

Ensuring Excellence in Education for Generations to Come

The Cherry Creek Schools Foundation is thrilled to announce the launch of a brand-new endowment to support all of Cherry Creek's teachers and students, in coordination with the 30th anniversary of the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation's founding.

Endowments are a powerful tool for creating lasting impact, and this initiative represents a permanent investment in the future of our students and schools. By establishing the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation Endowment, we can ensure that every teacher and student in our community has access to the resources they need to succeed, both now and for generations to come.

You can contribute to this important cause in many ways, including by making a legacy gift. When you make a legacy gift to the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation's endowment fund, you are making a long-term investment in the future of our schools. The endowment fund is a permanent source of funding that provides ongoing support for teachers and students throughout the district.

Through strategic investment and management, the endowment fund generates a steady stream of income that is used to fund critical programs and initiatives, such as classroom grants, professional development opportunities for teachers, and scholarships for students.
