Support Us

Dear Friend of The Vanguard School,

Along with your student’s success, The Vanguard School lists financial responsibility as a top priority. As a public charter school, accountability and oversight from the Board of Directors has allowed us to serve the community for over 15 years as a K-8 program and then expand into an outstanding four-year high school program. Our 29-acre campus was made possible by public bonds based on our academic performance and financial responsibility. Our funding comes to us in the same manner as every public school: tax dollars, through the Colorado Department of Education and to the school as Per Pupil Revenue based on our student count.

The school has three key fundraisers.
Lend A Hand Campaign, where families are asked to donate $100 per student attending school.
- Spring Benefit Bash, Vanguard's annual silent auction.
- Scrip gift card program. The school purchases gift cards at reduced prices and sells them at face value.

Proceeds from these fundraising events directly support excellence in education.

In addition to these annual fundraisers, we have been the fortunate and grateful recipients of generous donations of materials and funds from many sources and actively solicit such gifts.

Please partner in giving to The Vanguard School; we welcome your support. We are a 501(c)3 entity and, as such, your contributions are tax-deductible. Please contact our Director of Advancement, Audrey Szychulski, for information on how to help in this critical area by email at
