Stargate Annual Campaign

The 2016-17 school year marks the start of a new era for Stargate – the expansion to a K-12 school. Our new K-12 campusis the largest charter campus in Colorado and the second-largest in the nation. We are confident that our students – and our first graduating class of 2019 - will enjoy individual success and benefit society in ways beyond our current comprehension. Every Stargate family and loyal supporter has an opportunity to assist Stargate as we venture forward with this bold vision by contributing to the Stargate Annual Campaign.With the help of our very generous community, funds raised through the Annual Campaign have contributed to the following purchases:

·         iPads and Smart Boards for classrooms

·         Gifted Education Certifications for our teachers

·         A modular building for Instrumental Music and Band & Orchestra

·         Supplemental discretionary $$ to augment classroom budgets

·         New grass for the soccer field

·         New lunchroom tables

The Stargate Annual Campaign is an opportunity to show your support by making a one-time gift or setting up a monthly contribution using our secure, online donation page accessible from the Stargate Fundraising webpage here. We ask that all Stargate families participate and consider a tax deductible donation amount of $300 per family. We understand that not all families are able to give this amount; each family has the opportunity to volunteer a minimum of 1-2 hours per month or 15-20 hours per school year or to combine a monetary donation with volunteer time. And many of our families give much more! Our goal is to have 100% participation – every gift counts, no matter the size!

 Many companies match charitable donations; we encourage you to explore if your company provides this benefit. A corporate match may allow you to double or even triple the amount of your gift. If you have questions about matching gifts, please contact the Stargate Chief Financial Officer, Lynne Allen, at (303)450-3936 or


With your continued generosity, Stargate will maintain its commitment to deliver a high standard of achievement from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Every dollar donated to Stargate stays at Stargate.
