WHO WE ARE

We R-1 is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that raises money to invest in the enrichment of K-12 education in the Telluride School District. Specifically, we raise funds for experiential learning initiatives in and out of the classroom and support teacher magnet grants that encourage teacher retention. These initiatives fall outside the scope of our school system’s normal operating budget. We have awarded over $500,000 since our inception and currently support the 900+ students and approximately 90 teachers in the Telluride School District with our various granting programs.

HOW WE DO IT

We R-1 has numerous sources of revenues – from grant dollars, to corporate and individual donations, and  fund raising events. Revenues come from the generosity of numerous entities in our local community, such as Alpine Bank, Sotheby’s and the Telluride Foundation.
