What oversight is in place to determine how the foundation's funds are appropriated?
Alignment with and advancing the EPEF Mission and Vision shall be driving force for appropriating funding. Estes Park School District employees and students are eligible and encouraged to apply for grants and/or scholarships from EPEF. Requests should include integration through one of the education pillars or values as outlined in the EPEF bylaws. Overall, the students enrolled in the Estes Park School District exclusively benefit from EPEF grants, either indirectly or directly. Indirectly, the community at large will benefit from the improved educational experience of Estes Park School District students.
The EPEF has included a financial oversight policy and procedure in their policy manual on their website at: https://www.epeducationfoundation.org/policy-manual (page 46).
