RMAE Foundation Annual Giving Campaign

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Dear RMAE Community,

Each day at Rocky Mountain Academy, we bear witness to the impact a single act can have on our entire school community. ONE Random Act of Kindness can inspire the generous deeds of many. ONE question from an inquiring student can create a spirited and impactful conversation. ONE teaching moment can ignite an enduring passion. ONE smile can forge an everlasting friendship.

Nothing could be truer this year for our Annual Giving Campaign. ONE contribution has the power to impact RMAE students, teachers, and staff as we work to provide a sustainable future for our school. Your ONE donation shows your commitment to providing an excellent education for your child/children and demonstrates your support of our school mission – to inspire each student to pursue personal and academic excellence through an intellectually challenging Core Knowledge curriculum within a nurturing environment.

Last year, we raised over $27,000. Your gifts funded 1) a complete overhaul of our technology lab where we were able to replace 31 computers and 2) the installation of new school security system features, which include visitor badging, improved key cards for teachers and staff members, and upgraded door locks and video door monitoring in Building One. Your ONE donation counted, by enhancing the security of your children, our teachers, and our staff, and providing upgraded computers!

With the generous help of the Foundation, Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen’s Tech Lab has gone from an outdated collection of computers that still used floppy disks, to a first rate place for research, composition, and exploration. It is truly incredible to see the strides that the school has made in such a short amount of time to arm its students, and one very lucky Tech Teacher, with such diverse resources to be 21st century citizens and learners.

– Ian Dunbar, Technology Teacher

As a reminder, the RMAE Foundation is a 501(c)(3) committed to the financial stability of our school. Every year, we pursue this goal through a variety of means, one of which is raising funds through our Annual Giving Campaign.

This year, due to our lower enrollment, budget shortfalls necessitate taking funds from reserves. Therefore, funds raised through our Annual Giving Campaign will go to replenish the school’s reserves, to enhance K-8 programming beyond what the general fund budget can afford, and to support our marketing efforts with the objective of increasing our enrollment.

Your family is a vital part of our RMAE community and we encourage you to give. Given our low enrollment and subsequent budget constraints, our goal is to raise $45,000 and we are asking every family to give at least $500. That said, we completely understand if this amount is not feasible and encourage you to give what you can. Whether you give $50, $500, or $5,000, together, our individual contributions can make a powerful impact on our school.

Credit Card: You can donate online by going to our donation page where we are accepting one-time or recurring monthly donations.

Check: Alternatively, you can download and print the Annual Giving Pledge Form and mail or drop-off your contribution to the front office.

We thank you in advance for your ONE contribution and look forward to a wonderful school year for our children!

Respectfully,
Your RMAE Foundation Board
