Thank you for considering the CCPS Foundation as a recipient of your charitable contributions.

Financial donations are the most flexible, and you can direct your giving to a cause of your choice, or if you provide an undesignated gift, it will be used where it is most needed. To make a donation click on the button below.
You can designate your giving to one of the following current campaigns:
Expanding Excellence Capital Campaign:
CCPS is currently in an exciting phase of design and construction to enhance our school building with updated, state-of-the-art facilities, and to be able to grow to accept more students. Your support will help underwrite a new 400-seat gymnasium, black box theatre multi-use space, music suite and additional classrooms, a library/media center, technology lab, and renovation of classrooms. Naming opportunities are also available, and can be discussed with John Binnert, Executive Director, or Ray Wang, Associate Director.
The International Baccalaureate program provides a world renowned education. As juniors and seniors, students have the opportunity to sit for IB exams in subjects of their choice -- if they pass successfully, most colleges and universities accept these for college credit, helping students get a head start on their college education. However, each exam costs upwards of $100, and the CCPS Foundation provides scholarships to families for whom the cost is a barrier to completion.
Brick by Brick Fundraiser:
This fundraiser supports CCPS Foundation’s overall efforts, and a brick will be added to the school’s walkway with an inscription of your choice.
By providing an unrestricted gift, your support will be used where it is most needed.
Spring Gala Sponsorship:
By supporting our event, you will help to raise funds for Cottonwood Classical's exciting capital campaign that will provide mission-critical infrastructure including a theatre, gymnasium, cafeteria, music suite, library and expanded classrooms for Albuquerque students. We are pleased to offer several sponsorship benefits.
Other Ways to Donate
In kind donations of goods/services/saleable items are also a viable option, as are gifts of stock. Please contact Ray Wang, Associate Director, for more details if you have an in-kind gift in mind. For more detailed information and answers to questions, click over to our FAQ page. To make your gift even more impactful, check to see if your place of employment has a matching gift program. Many companies do, and they will match your gift dollar for dollar, up to a certain amount.
The CCPS Foundation thanks you for taking the time to learn about CCPS and humbly asks that you help by giving generously to our campaigns. Thank you so much for your support!
