Education has been a top priority of The Foundation since it’s inception. Stapleton presented a unique opportunity to ingrain that value in a community as it was taking shape over the years.
In the early 2000s, The Foundation published the Stapleton Education Master Plan. The plan was the culmination of a year of convening more than 200 residents, educators, students, nonprofit, community and business leaders to craft a vision of what could be achieve in a new urban community. Brian Weber, The Foundation’s Vice President of Education and Development Initiatives, led the research and development process and wrote the final plan.

School Grant Program
A key initiative is our School Grant Program (SGP), The Foundation's formal process to provide financial support to schools. The Foundation awards grants of up to $5,000 twice a year (fall and spring) to support projects that advance academic achievement, parent engagement or provides enrichment activities.
School Technical Support
The Foundation supplies technical support to schools and advocates for their programs. The Foundation is involved in school development and is a leader in the Northeast Denver Innovation Zone that’s made up of four area International Baccalaureate schools and two others: Swigert Elementary, McAuliffe International and McAuliffe Manual (both middle schools), Northfield High School; and Willow Elementary and Montclair Academy. The Foundation works with Park Hill Neighbors for Equity in Education to support the community to improve schools in the surrounding neighborhoods.
