Ways to Give

Open Door ESL program is a year-round program and has increased in enrollment with every new session.  Our supplies quickly run dry.  Open Door is always in need of some student materials.  Cash donations are also accepted.  All cash donations go towards tuition assistance and scholarships.

Donations:  Open Door can now accept monetary donations.  Please make checks out to “Calvary Church Open Door”.  We will be posting a direct link here in the future.  All donations are used for scholarships/tuition assistance.  Thank you for helping our students.

Classroom/Student Materials:  Below are some items that we are constantly in need of:

  • 1” binders (prefer white, black, or blue with the clear insert top, but will accept anything)
  • Dividers (5 or 8 tab)
  • Highlighters
  • White board markers
  • White board eraser
  • Composition books (5 x 7 size)
  • Vocabulary notecard packets (cards come in enclosed packet with a ring)
  • Files (even used)
  • File labels
  • Envelopes (letter size)
  • Silent Auction Items
  • pencils, pens (blue or black and red)

Other:  If you have anything else that you don’t need, and are wondering if they would work for this program, please just ask us.  We always seem to find a way to use items.

Open Door has a Silent Auction every first Friday in December at our annual Potluck.  Feel free to shop the deals and/or make a donation to our silent auction.  All proceeds go towards Scholarship Funds.

Come to our “Food and Fellowship” gathering in October and March at a local restaurant.  You will be able to meet teachers, volunteers, and students.  A percentage of proceeds will go towards Open Door Scholarship Fund.  Watch the Website for more information, or go to Facebook page:  OpenDoor ESL.  Here are our dates for 2020:  Oct. 16 (Chipotle) ; March 16

King Soopers – (coming soon).  You can now register Open Door at your local King Soopers.  Funds from this account go directly towards tuition assistance.

Shop with SCRIP

Open Door is in the process of starting a ‘Shop with Scrip’ program.  This is an excellent way for students to earn tuition assistance as well as Open Door to get additional help with program funds.  For more information on this program, see:

We are looking for a volunteer to help head up the program.  If you are interested, see Barbara Ulrich at
