Fundraising for various needs at McAuliffe International School is carried out through the McAuliffe at Smiley Foundation (MSF), a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization that was established in 2012. The purpose of MSF is to help address the funding gap between what the school district is able to provide and additional resources McAuliffe students need.
The Foundation works with the school administration to prioritize school needs, identify which essentials require additional fundraising, and then execute fundraising campaigns to address those needs. All donations to the foundation are 100% tax-deductible. Donate to the McAuliffe at Smiley Foundation in one of two ways: online or by check payable to ‘MSF’ and mailed or dropped off to 2540 Holly Street, Denver, CO 80207.
The Foundation is comprised of a board of directors. Current members of the board include: Maxwell Chisenga, Kendall Peterson, Michelle Moore, Jeremy Gurley, Karla Hanlon (Treasurer), and Brandi Wright (Secretary).
The Board meets the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m., in the McAuliffe library; all board meetings are open to the broader McAuliffe community.
