Telluride Academy Trustees are the Angels of our Organization! Trustees commit to an annual donation between $2,500 & $10,000 for 5 years. Trustees may earmark their contributions to an existing Academy initiative (ex. Tuition Assistance, Inclusion to support children with special needs, Internship program to train future Academy Instructors) or any other area of interest including support earmarked for a specific program (ex our after-school programs). Trustees may also elect to deposit their annual contribution into the Academy’s Endowment Fund for the Future. Established in 1996 by a group of dedicated Academy Parents, our endowment fund supports the long-term financial health of our non-profit organization. Academy Board of Directors decides the best use of endowment funds.
Over the years, endowment funds have been used to….
Secured United States Forest Service permits providing wild places for our students to explore (2006)
Loaned funds for a down payment allowing us to purchase a commercial condominium/Administrative office. This loan provided us time to conduct a successful capital campaign. Upon completion of the capital campaign, monies loaned were paid back to the endowment (2011).
Support the Academy’s mission of Inclusion for every child by supporting our tuition assistance fund should annual fundraising goals not cover this need in a given year (ongoing)
If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, please contact the Academy’s Executive Director, Luke Brown or by phone 970.728.5311.
