NEED Foundation

The NEED Foundation is a Colorado nonprofit corporation and a public charity under 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. That means that donors to the NEED Foundation may receive a tax donation for their generosity. The NEED Foundation is a separate entity from the Pikes Peak BOCES and was established to carry the debt for the previous school sites.

However, in 2013, The Pikes Peak BOCES was awarded a BEST Grant by the Colorado Department of Education, to purchase and remodel its current building. The previous building was sold, and there was no longer any debt to be carried. Therefore, The NEED Foundation switched gears, and has now become a foundation in the truest sense of the word.


Our Mission is to support the Pikes Peak BOCES School of Excellence, through funding of special projects, initiatives and proposals by grants from our foundation


If you are interested in making a donation to the NEED Foundation, to benefit the PPBOCES School of Excellence, please email Liz Lascano.
