The RMAE Foundation is committed to the long term financial stability of the school. We pursue this goal through a variety of means primarily focused outside the immediate school community, including grants and sponsorships, as well as through the school’s Annual Giving program. We work with the administration, school board, PTO and greater community to achieve our goals.
Annual Giving Campaign
The RMAE Foundation wants to extend a HUGE thank you to the 61 families who contributed to our 2016-2017 Annual Giving Campaign. We are elated to announce that we exceeded our goal of $45,000! We especially want to thank the anonymous donor who gave a generous gift that pushed us over our goal.
As you know, due to our lower enrollment, budget shortfalls necessitated taking funds from reserves. Because of your gifts, the 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.
If you would still like to give, we will continue to accept donations online at rmae.org/donate where we are accepting one-time or recurring monthly donations or download and print the Annual Giving Pledge Form and mail or drop-off your contribution to the front office.
Why Give to Annual Giving?
We will be featuring families and the reasons why they have given:
The Allbritton Family
Our two boys have attended RMAE since 2008, starting in preschool. In one word, they have thrived. The small class sizes have allowed them to receive the attention they need to explore and learn in their own ways. The teachers have been phenomenal with their care and attention to our boys both socially and academically. We also feel the curriculum offers a broader scope of education and holds higher standards than the typical pubic school education. If we had to do it all again, we would choose RMAE. We are hopeful for the future of this school and plan to support its re-growth and success!

The Chambers Family
The Chambers family has been living in Evergreen for nearly a decade, and love it. They have had their son, Brandon, at Rocky Mountain Academy since kindergarten and have been so impressed with the comprehensive approach of the Core Knowledge curriculum, the truly outstanding teachers he has had, the small class sizes, and the focus on character development. They are happy contributors to the foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign, and look forward to many more years here at RMAE.

The Jackson Family
Our family donated to the Annual Giving campaign because we love RMAE and want to see it thrive in years to come! We moved over from Marshdale Elementary to RMAE back in the fall of 2013 and it was the best decision we could have made. Our children, Paige (5th) and Tyler (1st), absolutely love their teachers – a special shout out to Mrs. Grose, Mrs. Bartelt, Ms. Hushen and Cherie Mazurek! These women know my children so well, even their quirks , and have poured out so much time, energy, and care to ensure they are building both knowledge and character. I look forward to Paige and Tyler attending RMAE through 8th grade and encourage other families to hang in here with us. Please consider giving what you can to this campaign… every donation matters.
