Jarrow offers two major ways to contribute to the financial well being of our school.
For 100 days from October through January, the community comes together in financial support of Jarrow’s mission. This important time of charitable giving helps us grow our inspiring educational programs, supports our world-class teachers, and makes a Montessori education a possibility for at-need families through our Financial Aid program. Simply put, The Annual Fund supports the people and programs that make Jarrow such an amazing school.
Jarrow’s Annual Gala
The most important event of the year, this unforgettable evening brings together our entire community for fundraising, toast raising, and great food and drink each Spring. The Gala includes a live and silent auction, a paddle raiser, and special giving opportunities like Teacher Wishes. Unique items including gift certificates, memberships, and travel packages are available.
Every year, a special project is chosen for the paddle raiser. In 2019, we raised money to support Teacher Professional Development. All other proceeds support our financial aid fund. Come and enjoy live music, delicious food, cocktails and dessert by a local chef.
Everyday Ways to Give
While these two initiatives provide Jarrow with the most fundraising dollars, there are several other ways that you can give. Please visit the Everyday Ways to Give page to learn about the many opportunities available to you.
The Tax Benefits of Giving: Colorado’s Child Care Contribution Credit
Taxpayers that make a qualifying monetary contribution to promote child care in Colorado may claim an income tax credit of 50% of the total qualifying contribution. The credit a taxpayer can claim for qualifying contributions made during a tax year is limited to $100,000. In-kind contributions of services or property (non-monetary donations) do not qualify for the credit.
At Jarrow, this applies to Annual Fund donations as well as Teacher Wishes and the Paddle Raiser at the Annual Gala. For more information, please consult your tax advisor.
