EIG: A GIFT ALTERNATIVE
uploaded December 2, 2016

Maybe you remember the first time you heard about an educator initiated grant? “EIGs” provide opportunities for teachers and classrooms to take ideas to reality. The impact and innovation through Cherry Creek Schools Foundation funding is made possible by contributions big and small…It All Adds Up. This year another 91 EIGs were funded thanks to our donors.

Ideas in science, technology, engineering, arts and math have blossomed because of the commitment of schools, teachers and students to put donated funds to good use. This year, in lieu of other gifts (or in addition), donate in honor of a teacher. It is a gift that gives twice:

1. Honor the teacher (you enter the name with the donation, and we the foundation notifies them).
2. The funds enhance classroom experiences and 21st century skills can flourish.

Visit www.ccsdfoundation.org, click the donate icon on the top of the screen, enter donation details including those you wish to honor.
