Our Full Member Level organizations invest a portion of their yearly SCFD award (a sales and use tax) into the Alliance Project Grant. It provides curriculum-based cultural, arts, and scientific programs to a team of interdisciplinary teachers in a K-12 public and charter school within the SCFD 7-counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas* and Jefferson (*except for Castle Rock and Larkspur who have opted-out of the sales and use tax.) Eligible counties rotate yearly.
The Alliance Grant may undergo changes before the start of the school year due to the impact of COVID-19 on our organizations.
The Alliance Grant gave our students the opportunity to experience arts and cultural programs that couldn’t have been accessed in our typical curriculum. Through field trips, guest speaker assemblies, plays and concerts the Alliance Grant has made a lasting impact on our students.
We got to do stuff that made what we are learning in the class real and helped me understand more.
Adams, Boulder, Denver and Jefferson Counties.
