Upcycle is RAFT’s primary fundraising event. When you attend, you will enjoy an unexpectedly festive, interactive environment where you, along with business leaders, philanthropists, top-notch educators, will experience the power and fun of hands-on learning. Last year, our RAFT community raised $300,000 to support teachers and students in Colorado!
This award is given to a Colorado leader who has demonstrated a commitment to teachers and an ability to unite educators, philanthropists, business and political leaders to improve education for children in Colorado.
This award goes to a RAFT group that volunteers repeatedly over time; achieves exceptional results; and leverages its relationships to support RAFT beyond the scope of its scheduled service.
This award is presented to a RAFT member who exemplifies outstanding teaching of academics and 21st century skills using innovative materials and hands-on learning.
This award is presented to an administrator who works collaboratively with teachers and community leaders to implement an innovative educational vision designed to increase student engagement and performance.
