  • Mission:
  • Basalt Education Foundation raises funds to enhance education at three Basalt, Colorado, public schools (elementary, middle and high school).

  • History:
  • Basalt Education Foundation began as a small group of public-school parents who rallied to organize a Taste of Basalt fundraiser in 1996. Since then, the annual dinner-dance-silent auction event has raised more than $350,000 to enhance education at Basalt's three public schools. The Taste of Basalt has been our main source of fundraising. School teachers and administrators apply for funding for specific programs and classroom needs, ranging from environmental education field trips and library books to science-lab supplies and classroom projectors.

    In 2005 the Taste of Basalt committee became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the name Basalt Kids. In 2011, the name was changed to Basalt Education Foundation to better reflect its mission and growth. This year, a specific grant-writing committee has been formed to seek educational grant funding on local and national levels.

    Additional educational funding is especially crucial now, as our small school district's budget has been slashed $2.6 million for the 2011-2012 school year. This comes after school operating budgets have been cut in previous years. For example, at Basalt Elementary School, the building budget was $124,144.20 in 2008/09, $104,067.00 in 2009/10, $88,443.50 in 2010/11 and will be $62,326.37 in 2001/12. Grade teachers are receiving $0 next school year for classroom supplies.
