Fundraising

No matter the size, every gift to Stargate is important and greatly appreciated.

Stargate Giving Platform

Your tax-deductible gifts help make up the difference between district and state funding allocations and the actual cost of running the school. It’s just one way that we help maintain Stargate’s strong financial position. You can:

  • make a secure online gift

  • mail a check - Stargate School, 14530 Washington Street Thornton, CO 80023

  • contact the school Executive Director of Operations and Finance, Lynne Allen, at 303-450-3936 to make a gift

Employer Match

Many employers match donations. Last year, we received more than $7,000 through matching donations. If you aren't sure if your employer matches gifts, contact your HR or benefits group.

Why Is Fundraising Necessary?

At a time when many schools are cutting back, the Stargate community remains committed to giving our students meaningful opportunities to explore, discover and grow – both inside and outside the classroom. To make those unique opportunities possible, community members are expected to, when possible, support the school financially. As a Charter school, Stargate does not generally receive a full proportionate share of property taxes/bond election funds and - unlike District schools - must fund its facilities from operating revenues. As a result, Stargate, like other Charter schools looks to alternative revenue sources, including annual fundraising campaigns, to supplement needs that fall outside of the annual operating budget. To read more, visit our Charter School Finance 101 page. You can find a list of some of the priority projects needing $ this year on our Community Giving page.

Fundraising Allocation Process

A committee of Stargate volunteers and staff oversees an internal request process for distribution of funds raised through the Fundraising Committee and allocated for disbursal each year by the Governance Board. Visit the Fundraising Allocation Committee page to submit a request for funds, to learn more about the allocation process or to get involved with the group.
