The Heart of Jarrow Annual Fund is our most important fundraising effort of the year. Every dollar raised supports the annual operating budget in the year it is given. It is our answer to balancing the intentional gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student, which is thousands more. Annual Fund donations go directly to work, supporting the salaries and benefits of our dedicated teachers and staff as well as materials and facilities.
As you think about giving to Jarrow, we ask you to consider the ripple effect of a generous gift, and how it could make a difference for all our children and our entire community. Your participation, in any way, is meaningful and greatly appreciated.

How Can I Make my Donation Go Farther?
We are proud to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As such, your donation qualifies as federally-recognized charitable contribution and is eligible for tax benefits. In Colorado, we have the added benefit of the Child Care Contribution Tax Credit. Taxpayers who make a monetary contribution to promote child care may claim an income tax credit of 50% of their total contribution.*
As we continue to keep the safety of our families a priority, we have invested in areas, including expensive renovations which make it possible for us to social distance, from additional bathrooms to sunshades, and our classrooms have the highest quality air purifiers available. Your support is essential. Together, we can help Jarrow sustain and thrive during this unusual time in our 59 year history.

Almost every year for the past 7 years, I’ve hosted the annual gala. I have no experience in this realm, but when I learned how impactful the gala was in raising money for tuition assistance and special projects through the paddle-raiser, I jumped at the idea. I believe in Jarrow and the impact it has on not only my children, but our whole family. But more importantly, I believe that no one should be denied the Jarrow experience because they are financially unable to do so.
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s how blessed we are to have such amazing teachers guiding our children. We contributed because we believe in Jarrow. And we ask you to join us in giving whatever you can to help in this critical time for our school and community.”

Why We Give
“For our son Liam, Jarrow is so much more than a school. It is his community of learning and of friendship. It has always been Liam’s love for his school that has inspired us to participate more and give more, whether it’s through volunteering for events or bidding on classroom projects at the Gala.
Now as the Chair of the Board of Trustees, I have gone from a parent who wants to support my son’s school, to an ambassador of Jarrow, who knows the inspiring impact giving to Jarrow has had and will have on generations to come.
Right now, our school needs us more than ever. We want Jarrow to come out of this crisis thriving and we can make sure that happens by giving to the teachers and staff that have made this school such a wonderful part of our lives. We hope you will join us.”

“I am so thankful for Jarrow remaining open and keeping our kids in school. We came to Jarrow last year when we moved to Boulder and found a truly unique place that we value so much. I have witnessed my son, Preston, develop into a self-sufficient, confident and caring little boy whose energy and spunk is embraced and fostered. Though this year is unique and many of you new families haven’t had the chance to get to know the community as it would be if life were normal, I hope you feel as nourished as we do just being a part of this wonderful place.
I contributed to Jarrow because of how much it has meant to me for Preston to find a home here in Boulder and to show my appreciation for the teachers and staff who have made our lives infinitely more enriched.”
