Innovation Takes Money

We are pleased to announce a matching opportunity that starts now! Every donation that is given online from today through Giving Tuesday, December 3 will be matched dollar for dollar--up to $5,000. A huge thanks to Jeff and Lea Curler for sponsoring this generous matching gift.
 
100% of our Board of Directors and over 80% of our staff have already given—meaning we have already raised over $6,000 towards our $15,000 goal. We need your help to cross the finish line!
 
When you visit our page, you can choose from three campaigns—The Area of Greatest NeedEvery Compass Student Needs to Eat, and School is the REAL WORLD! If you like, you can spread your gift easily over any of these campaigns with one simple payment. Every dollar will be matched!
 
Compass strives to push the barriers of traditional education on a daily basis—but all of this innovation takes money. Colorado currently funds schools over $2,000 less per pupil than the national average. And as a public charter school, we need to make these funds cover not only our world-class staff and cutting-edge programming—we also have to pay for infrastructure and our building. Every dollar that you give helps us provide the best possible education—and future preparation--for your students. Please take a moment and DOUBLE your impact today.
 
We seek to break down the barriers between school and the "real world," which is why "community" is part of our name. Please spread the word to YOUR community—you can post a link to our giving page with a simple click onto Facebook. Tell everyone about your gift—and give them the chance to have theirs matched as well.
 
Thank you for being a part of our vibrant learning community.
 
Yours Gratefully,
 
Jan Harrison
School Leader
