Fundraising


How can you participate?

Annual Campaign

The Annual Campaign is a key fundraising initiative each year. 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 today

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

  • contact the school CFO, Lynne Allen, at 303-450-3936 to make a gift

For more information about the annual campaign, visit our Campaign FAQs.

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.

Stargate Gala

Attend the school Gala – planned this year for March 10, 2018 at The Omni Interlocken Resort – and enjoy a night out with fellow Stargate supporters. You can participate in silent and live auctions while contributing to our exceptional school. More than 400 people attend the event each year, including Stargate parents and their friends, grandparents, teachers, and community partners. The event includes a plated dinner, entertainment, a silent and live auction (during dinner), and a paddle raise. As perhaps the largest fundraiser at Stargate, we solicit sponsorships from area businesses, and ask parents to donate items for the silent and live auction. 

Registration for the Gala will open in mid-December 2017. Seating is limited.

Fall Fundraiser

Purchase or renew subscriptions to your favorite magazines during our Fall Fundraiser and help students raise money for Stargate. In addition to magazines, we'll be selling great tasting dry cookie dough mix. Students earn prizes for participation and for being among our top sellers.

Dining Out

Throughout the year, we’ll have dining out nights at various establishments. Some of our fundraisers will be held at: Jim 'N Nicks BBQ, Chick-Fil-A, Chipotle, Panda Express and more to come! Watch the calendar on this page and the school newsletters for upcoming events.

Fun Events & Spirit Wear

You're helping our school when you attend Stargate Day sporting events at the Rockies and Nuggets, Skate City fundraisers or other events in the metro area. Watch the calendar on this page and school newsletters for upcoming events. And, wherever you go, don't forget your Stargate Spirit Wear

Volunteer

If you are interested in supporting Stargate School with your time and service, please consider joining the Fundraising Committee. We meet on the first Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. in the secondary school building. We welcome all volunteers, even those who can’t attend meetings. If you’re interested in helping with a specific event or have some fundraising ideas, please contact the fundraising committee at fundraising@stargateschool.org.

Retail Spending Programs - An Easy Way to Contribute

You can earn money for Stargate just by shopping with the retailers you already visit and buying the products you already buy!

Turn these in to your teacher:


Box Tops for Education - each box top we collect is worth 10¢ for our school. We can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever the school needs.

MILK CAPS for MOOOLA - Longmont Dairy milk caps are worth 5¢ each and are redeemable for cash by our school.

Use these when you shop:


King Soopers and Safeway - King Soopers $5 gift cards and $25 Safeway cards are available for purchase at the Stargate front desk, while supplies last. Once you use the pre-loaded $5, the card can be re-loaded at the store's service desk, or directly at checkout. Stargate earns money each time the cards are re-loaded…at NO additional cost to you!

Amazon Smile - simply go to smile.amazon.com (instead of Amazon.com). Your account information, shopping cart, wish list, wedding. or baby registry, and other account settings will be the same. Select Stargate as your charitable organization and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Stargate.
