Meeker Education Foundation Endowment Fund
“The mission of the Meeker Education Foundation is to support and enhance educational opportunities for the
Meeker School District by providing independent resources.”
Your consideration of a gift to the Meeker Education Foundation Endowment Fund is greatly appreciated. Our schools’ current fiscal circumstances underscore the importance of building a healthy Endowment whose sphere of influence will grow as it grows. Ultimately it will lend financial security to the District. Donations can be restricted to a specific area of interest or unrestricted and will be managed accordingly.
At this time, gifts to the Endowment will be managed in a balanced portfolio by Edwards Jones, the Foundation’s financial and investment management firm. Once large enough, the goal is for the Endowment’s earnings to offer financial support for the Foundation’s Grant Award Program. However, while the Endowment grows, an annual Benefit Dinner and Auction and other donations will help fund this granting program.
Memorial funds, can be established within the Endowment. They will be managed with the endowment, but their assets will be individually monitored. The Jason Hightower Memorial Fund is the first of these funds.
All donations may be made online through PayPal, Credit or Debit card or By Mail to P.O. Box 255, Meeker, CO 81641
