Donate to STEMGives! Today!
Our goal is to raise $75,000 for STEM School Highlands Ranch by Friday, Jan. 14. 100% of funds raised from STEMGives! goes directly to the STEM PTO. The STEM PTO uses the funds to support students and teachers at STEM School Highlands Ranch. The funds will provide classroom enrichment through our teacher’s grants and help fund many other requests by your STEM School. Your contribution is not split with any fundraising vendors and you don’t have to help your children sell anything.
