It’s #GivingTuesday! Donate to STEM today!

Giving Tuesday

It’s #GivingTuesday! There are so many ways to give to STEM at any time throughout the school year, but we’d like to share just a few of them that you could take advantage of on Giving Tuesday.


Our goal is to raise $75,000 for STEM School Highlands Ranch by Sunday, Dec. 13. 100% of funds raised from STEMGives! goes directly to the STEM PTO. The STEM PTO uses the funds to support students and teachers at STEM School Highlands Ranch. The funds will provide classroom enrichment through our teacher’s grants and help fund many other requests by your STEM School. Your contribution is not split with any fundraising vendors and you don’t have to help your children sell anything. Check out the video below.

Corporate match

The PTO will be accepting online donations through Colorado Gives at the link below. Colorado Gives is an online donation site that accepts credit cards, debit cards and bank account transfers. Donations can be made one time or recurring/monthly. $200/family or $20/month will make a great impact! Donors can also pay by check. Checks should be made out to STEM PTO (write STEM Gives! in the memo) and delivered to the STEM Secondary School office. Checks can also be mailed to the STEM Secondary School Office at:

The STEM PTO is a chapter of the Foundation for Douglas County Schools which is a 501(c)3 organization so your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Friends and family can make donations as well.

You can double your donation! As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, the STEM PTO is a chapter of the Foundation for Douglas County Schools and qualifies for corporate matching.
