Elizabeth Education Foundation announces grant awards

For Immediate Release


The Elizabeth Education Foundation (EEF) is pleased to announce the 2022 grant recipients. Grants are awarded based on the EEF’s guidelines which enhance teaching opportunities and have the most impact within the classroom environment.


The grant funds are generated through fundraising such as King Soopers reward cards, Safeway grocery cards, Amazon smile rewards, partnerships with local restaurants, and discounted community nights with the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, and Colorado Mammoth. In addition, EEF receives private donations for this program from anonymous contributors, which we graciously thank. Please help us continue to support our school district by supporting our fundraising efforts. Visit us at or email
