Join The Campaign

The I Believe campaign has reached a milestone. We’re 72% of the way to our new school — and we need you to help us cross the finish line of our $13.1 M campaign.

With the BEST grant and match, we achieved our Phase I goal of $9.1M on May 1, 2013. It was a watershed moment for our organization: delivered on time, on target, and most importantly en masse, with 650+ community donors working together to make this historic dream a reality.

But the story of the new Aspen Community School has yet to be told. We still have $3.75M to go to make our campus a reality. The BEST grant, which exclusively funds new construction projects, does not cover initiatives such as our:

  • Music + Performing Arts Learning Center,
  • Pedestrian-centric campus, built through extensive site work and traffic realignments,
  • Green spaces: playing fields, outdoor classrooms, sledding hill, and commons, or
  • four employee housing units to ensure teacher retention and recruitment.

Phase II (the remaining $3.75M) will cover these vital building blocks and will allow us to fully realize our campus design. Conversely, if we don’t raise the remaining capital, these assets — which ensure a green, sustainable, artistic, and safe future for our students — will be left on the editing room floor.

We want to give the people of the Roaring Fork Valley, people who care about educational excellence in the U.S., and, especially, these students the school they deserve. But we cannot do it without your help. Please join us today.
