Great Education Colorado

a nonprofit organization dedicated to driving educational excellence for all Colorado students through grassroots activism.


Please join your fellow Coloradans in telling the members of the State Board of Education and other state leaders:

  • "We believe it is time for our state Social Studies standards to be updated to include the perspectives, history, culture, and social contributions of all groups."
  • "We want schools that ensure all our students, families, and communities feel welcomed, included and represented."
  • "We want all students to learn the honest and comprehensive history of our nation, along with the critical thinking skills that will serve them as citizens of our democracy their entire lives."
  • "For these reasons, we call on the State Board of Education to accept all recommendations put forth by the Social Studies Standards Committee, which reflect the considered work of content experts, including teachers and parents."

Great Education Colorado’s Ambassadors for Public Education are generous, passionate, and diverse partners who believe that making impactful change to public school funding requires meaningful, philanthropic commitment.

Ambassadors for Public Education pledge minimum annual gifts of $1,000 to Great Education Colorado for three years (paid quarterly or annually). Collectively, your pledges form a sustainable philanthropic pillar empowering Great Ed to maintain the adequate and equitable education funding movement.

All Ambassadors are able to stay knowledgable about pressing education funding topics, support Great Education Colorado and share with the community the strategies to support public education funding across the state of Colorado.
