25% of our community has already donated toward the Direct Giving Campaign, raising about $31k. Thank You!
Help us Reach Our Goal!
We need help to reach our $110,000 fundraising goal, and your contribution is vital to our school. We would love for every family to participate in the Direct Giving Campaign and to contribute whatever amount works for you.
A donation of any amount is always appreciated and it all makes a difference!
Why Direct Giving versus a different type of fundraiser?
- Direct Giving allows Swigert to raise more money than Third-Party-Fundraising companies (like wrapping paper sales), which can take as much as 50% of the donation.
- 100% of your donations goes directly to Swigert!
- 100% of your donations are tax deductible (download tax forms).
- Many employers will also match your contribution dollar for dollar.
Donate now and you will also be entered to win 2 Denver Nuggets tickets to the home opener game on October 20th!
Direct Giving Makes a Big Impact
- Swigert’s IB Program is exclusively funded by your donations and Swigert would lose this distinction without your donations!
- The IB Program may be one of the reasons you chose Swigert. This programming elevates the elementary school education by broadening the scope of learning, as compared to a traditional curriculum.
Funding from the Direct Giving Campaign pays for
- IB Program and IB Coordinator
- Teacher Professional Development
- Paraprofessionals & Spanish Teacher
