The Frank DeAngelis Columbine High School Academic Foundation

We are a non-profit organization aiming to raise funds for educational purposes to support the interests of Columbine High School's students and teachers

The Problem

Budget cuts. Escalating costs. Limited resources. It has become increasingly difficult for Columbine High School to provide the important educational tools needed to keep students competitive in Colorado and prepared for the 21st-century workplace.

What We Do

The goal of The Frank DeAngelis Columbine High School Academic Foundation (CHSAF) is to help offset escalating costs for important educational needs. We are 100% volunteer-driven. 100% independent of Jefferson County Public Schools. And most importantly, 100% of the proceeds raised by the Foundation are invested back into Columbine High School.

Get Involved

We can't do this alone. There are many ways to get involved with CHSAF. You can provide financial support, sponsor or partner with the foundation, attend a volunteer meeting, and help spread the word!
