The RFYO offers all families the subsidized tuition rate of $400 per year. The actual tuition rate that would cover the full cost of the RFYO program is $1,800 per student per school year. If you are able to pay the difference of $1,400, or any part of it, the difference is tax-deductible. Donating through Colorado Gives Day or by check ensures that all of your donation goes to the RFYO without any fees. Thank you!
