AEF believes that our children deserve life-changing educational experiences. AEF believes that all K-12 Aspen public school students benefit from the generosity of the community. AEF funds the programs that raise the bar in our public schools.
Our vision is that every child in our community has access to an extraordinary public education. All students deserve rigorous academics and a multitude of beyond classroom educational experiences that inspire curiosity and a love of learning.
Aspen Education Foundation champions public education, raising money to fund programs and positions of distinction. In partnership with school administrators and the community, we identify programs that we believe are vital for our students, but are not funded by the State of Colorado. We support academics, educators, students, and the Aspen public schools.
“Our community’s most important mission is the education of our children.”
