What We Fund
For almost 30 years, the Durango Education Foundation has adapted our funding focus to meet the evolving needs of the teachers and students in Durango School District 9-R.
One element that doesn't change: D.E.F. takes our responsibility to donors as seriously as we take our commitment to the students and teachers. In giving every application a detailed review, we consider faculty and district input, inter- and intra-school collaboration, donor preference, alignment with the 9-R District Strategic Plan, and the reviewing committees' own experience. It’s an exciting process, one that gives D.E.F. great insight into the visions our teachers and administrators hold for their schools.
