For every student who confidently raises their hand in class, another has trouble keeping up. When a team roster is posted at school, most players are overjoyed, but some wonder if their family can afford the fees or uniforms. And in every classroom across the Boulder Valley School District, there are students quietly in crisis.
Our students worry about these learning, financial and emotional struggles; they’re so attuned to everything that’s happening around them. Can you imagine how the COVID pandemic, a mass shooting, and Colorado’s most destructive wildfire have impacted their mental health? Every student carries these experiences with them, and decades from now this will be a turning point.
You can help create a lasting legacy of mental well-being and compassion for others that our whole community carries forward.
Your gift ensures we’re able to continue focusing on the mental health of students, their families and our valued educators. Our greatest strength is our ability to adapt to meet emerging needs, and we hope we can count on your support today!
After the Marshall Fire we provided students, educators and families with direct financial support, school supplies and replacement academic materials, and a critical part of our response was providing funding for BVSD to hire four new Mental Health Advocates to support the most impacted students and schools. These investments happened alongside an expansion of our summer learning program for rising Kindergarteners, launching a new Career Readiness Academy for underrepresented high schoolers, and awarding grants to schools and educators that provide opportunities for all students to succeed.
The gift you make to Impact on Education enables us to make these targeted long-term investments and to meet immediate needs that surface throughout the year.
“Impact on Education is there for us in our moments of greatest need.”Dr. Rob Anderson, BVSD Superintendent
Our partnership with BVSD includes the voices of our educators, from counselors to administrators to classroom teachers, and many others. These are the people who know what students and families need, and they trust Impact on Education to help.
When you make a gift to Impact on Education you’re helping to drive change for local students, public education and our whole community.
