Will you help support 8,000 local students in need?

Every year we equip students in financial need within the Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District with age-appropriate school supplies, headphones, and a new backpack.

Did you know that 89% of parents & guardians expect rising prices to impact their back-to-school shopping plans?

Especially right now as inflation hits its highest level in four decades, times are tight for families and we know that many will struggle with back-to-school expenses for their children this fall. 

The challenge encourages individuals and organizations to raise $25,000, or 10% of the total program cost.

The challenge is a fun way to bring organizations and networks together in support of a common goal: supporting local students and equitable classrooms. The challenge lasts for four weeks, and we provide resources and tips for fun activities that encourage individual and team participation. Collect badges along the way and don't miss out on:
