History & Past Projects

2010

A small group of volunteers passionate about our community’s kids created The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans Schools in 2010 as an independent non-profit organization that links our communities to our schools. The Success Foundation embraces innovation and strives to create exceptional learning environments and supports projects that build 21st century skills for our students.

The first teacher grants were awarded. To date, 115 Grants have been awarded in 28 schools for a total of $234,099. From online curriculum to the creation of projects with circuits to young authors, our grant program allows teachers to stretch their students’ capabilities and dreams. Students are working with 21st Century tools that are developing college/career readiness.

The first Thrive on $5 Employee Giving Campaign was held. Staff in District 6 are encouraged to give $5 or more a month to support educational opportunities for students in our district. Thrive on $5 donations go straight back to teachers through our 21st Century Education Grant Program.
