Providing essential supplies

EQUITY IN CLASSROOMS

We provide essential school supplies and other resources to help ensure every student has the opportunity to participate in learning.

CRAYONS TO
CALCULATORS

We work all year to provide opportunities for BVSD students, but an important first step is ensuring every student starts the school year with the supplies they need for a strong and successful academic year.

Our annual school supply distribution, Crayons to Calculators, provides age-appropriate school supplies, headphones, and a new backpack to over 8,000 students facing financial hardship in the Boulder Valley School District and the St. Vrain Valley School District.

Why school supplies are so important

When families face difficult financial decisions or tradeoffs, such as buying groceries or school supplies, it can impact a student’s success in the classroom and in life. Ensuring every student has access to school supplies creates equitable classrooms across all grade-levels.

89% of parents & guardians expect rising prices to impact their back-to-school shopping plans.


We are proud to partner with NAACP Boulder County to provide multicultural art supplies to BVSD classrooms so students can more accurately reflect themselves and others in their art and other work.

Helping BVSD students see all colors of the world

Students in the Boulder Valley School District deserve to know they belong, especially in school. One simple, yet powerful, way to achieve that is giving them art supplies that represent a range of skin tones. 

Each pack of crayons, markers and colored pencils contains 24 specifically-formulated colors representing people of the world. The subtle shades inside are formulated to better represent the growing diversity worldwide

MULTICULTURAL ART SUPPLIES

Impact on Education funding provided Crayola Colors of the World supply kits and workbooks to all BVSD elementary classrooms and middle schools.


MUSIC EDUCATION

As part of our response to the 2021 Marshall Fire, we funded the repair and cleaning of hundreds of musical instruments donated by the community.

Through a 2019 partnership with Pathways to Jazz, we provided over $10,000 in grants to music educators at schools across the Boulder Valley School District. Recipients brought their new and innovative ideas to classrooms and shared them through performances or other formats during an end of year showcase.
