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 9, 2019 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. More information on sponsorships and donations forthcoming!
