Helping students reach their highest potential

What are we promising?

Many talented students in our district are unable to attend college -- due to funding gaps of as little as $1,000 -$5,000. 

The Aspen Promise aims to step in and close the funding gap between what students have already received from Federal, State and Institutional grants and the real of cost of attendance. 

The Aspen Promise will match donors with promising students to make college a reality for every student at Aspen High School. 

How can you help? 

With a generous first gift from the Lichtenwalter family, The Aspen Promise has been established as an endowed scholarship fund, designed to help students now and in the future. Generated from gifts of all sizes, the fund will assist students who demonstrate they have exhausted all other financial possibilities. 

The Lichtenwalter family has launched The Aspen Promise by giving the initial gift in honor of their sons and with the hope that other educationally-minded donors will follow their lead.
