Great futures start with you

Impact on Education was founded to encourage excellence in the Boulder Valley School District and increase community involvement in public education. Today, we continue to work alongside the district ensuring educators can thrive and students flourish. Planned giving helps ensure Impact on Education can be here for our community tomorrow, next year, and long into the future. 

A planned gift is a personal and meaningful contribution that affords you the opportunity to give in a way that will leave a lasting legacy for you and the thousands of students who will be influenced by your generosity.


Over the years, you’ve inspired us with your willingness to invest in public education and the important work Impact on Education does to support educators, students, and our community. We are grateful for your ongoing support and hope you’ll join us by creating a legacy of lasting impact for students in Boulder Valley public schools. Your support helps ensure Impact on Education can be here for our community tomorrow, next year, and long into the future.

This is your chance to ensure students in the Boulder Valley School District receive an education that is both equitable and excellent.

Leaving a planned gift is a meaningful way to honor your values and realize significant financial, tax and estate planning benefits. The process is simple, but the impact will be felt for generations to come.

Imogene Maxon was a lifetime educator whose own legacy extends beyond the BVSD classroom. She believed in inspiring and supporting both teachers and teacher education. Through a planned gift we’re able to administer the Imogene Maxon Early Educator Award each year, enabling Imogene to support what she believed in most beyond her lifetime.



We’re happy to walk you through the planned giving process and answer your questions. To learn more, please contact our Director of Development and Community Relations, Darcy Morel:

  • Can I designate my planned gift for a specific purpose?

    Yes. When designating a planned gift you have the ability to identify a specific purpose for the gift.

We encourage you to contact us directly to discuss the needs of the organization and how your gift can best be utilized.

    There is no minimum amount required to establish a planned gift for Impact on Education. You don’t have to have extraordinary wealth to make a planned gift. Every gift will make a huge impact over time!
