27J Education Foundation announces change

Brighton, Jan 30, 2013 – The School District 27J Education Foundation has announced a significant change to its organizational structure that will allow the non-profit organization to better focus on its mission to preserve and support district educational opportunities.


                The Foundation board of directors has chosen not to fill its vacant executive director position following the recent retirement of former executive director Micki Gunning. 

                “We thank Micki for her service and commitment to supporting education in School District 27J,” said 27J Education Foundation President Charles Zachemsky.
As a 100-percent volunteer run organization, Zachemsky said the Foundation will now be able to focus all of its financial resources on scholarships and grants to support the students and staff of School District 27J.
                “I believe it makes a very powerful statement when we can tell those who choose to financially support the Foundation that every dollar they contribute will have a direct impact on the students and staff of our school district. Ultimately, that is the sole reason the 27 Education Foundation exists,” Zachemsky said.
                With the change, the 27J Education Foundation has a new email address,, and eventually plans to have an improved web presence as well.
                The Foundation is currently preparing for its sixth annual Celebrate the Future Luncheon at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 5, at the Brighton Armory, 300 Strong St., Brighton, CO. More information can be found at
