Teacher Appreciation Campaign 2022: May 2 - 6 was National Teacher Appreciation Week! EPEF hosted a successful campaign whereby people could donate to EPEF in a valued teacher's or staff member's name. Recognized teachers received a Certificate of Appreciation. 100% of the proceeds went to the "Teacher/Staff support" pillar of EPEF Thanks to all that participated and many thanks to our incredible teachers and staff members!
CSU Cadaver Lab: Ms. Pam Frey's Sports Medicine class had a unique opportunity to visit the CSU Cadaver Lab in April 2022. EPEF was able to fund this incredible 'hands-on' experiential learning occasion. Several of the students are considering future studies in health care.
CTE at work: At EPEF's request and funding, the construction geometry class is designing and building a storage shed for EPEF. It will be used to store materials used for events. Thank you students and teacher, Sarah Schmidt!

Online Scholarship Management Program:
Scholarship applications and management reimagined!
EPEF, in collaboration with Estes Park High School, is proud to announce the launch of the new ONLINE SCHOLARSHIP MANAGEMENT PROGRAM!
This program will provide a secure, simplified, efficient program for students, donors, and those managing the process, with online portals for each. It will also provide continuity from year to year as well as during extreme situations (such as COVID 19 or wildfires).
EPEF has committed $2,000/year toward this program. The program, however, costs more than our current sustainable financial capacity.
To the rescue - Mueller Pye & Associates CPA has graciously provided a $2,000 matching grant per year for 5 years toward this program!
This would allow EPEF to establish sustained financing for the program by having 35 organizations and/or individuals commit to an automatic contribution of $5 / month (a "cup of coffee") toward the cost of the program. Be one of the 35 in the "Coffee Club 35" who is willing to donate a "cup of coffee" each month to support this needed program.
Click on the purple button below or the Colorado Gives button in the footer to get started.
Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) that your contribution is for the matching grant. Thank you!
