Your donations are needed!
Local, state, and national resources have fallen under pressure, as have donations to community organizations. Funds are often not available to provide valuable programs needed to assist educators and students in meeting today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.
Schools have had programs in art, music, sports, textbooks, classroom equipment, and teacher supplies reduced or totally eliminated.
The Foundation has and is continuing to develop a very supportive and respectful relationship with businesses and community organizations, joining with them around common goals to enhance and further students’ educational opportunities.
The charitable funds that FELAE uses to support students, their activities, and their teachers are provided by people just like you. We have three basic ways to support our programs:
We accept individual donations in support of our various outreach programs in the form of cash, annual pledges, payroll deductions (paid monthly or quarterly by check or credit card), and employer matching grants. We will provide appropriate documentation for all direct donations and will notify families of receipt of memorial donations.
To make a donation now via credit or debit card, click on the "donate" link at the top or bottom of the page to use our secure online system. Please mail checks to FELAE, P.O. Box 366, Golden, CO 80402-0366. Please contact us direct if you would like to arrange for an electronic transfer of funds.
FELAE works with business and community leaders to provide matching grants for projects in their community, as well as create and participate in matching grant programs for their employees. If your business would be interested in partnering with FELAE, please contact us directly as we will be glad to work with your business or organization to create an effective fundraising program.
Contribute your time: Volunteer
Volunteers are also needed to assist with fundraising, writing and reviewing grant proposals, and coordinating and supporting community events. If you wish to assist, please contact us by email providing your name, email, phone number, city & state, availability, and in what area(s) you would like to assist.
NOTE: We are awaiting confirmation of federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit status from the IRS, and once approved all donations will be treated as tax-deductable charitable donations retroactively. Should by some chance our application for federal 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit status be rejected, you will be contacted directly with the option to continue with your donation without tax-exemption or to have your donation refunded to you.
