Dear Denver Rotarians…
Junior Achievement is supported by a $3,000 grant from our Denver Rotary Club Foundation for 2019-2020
We are extremely grateful for the support of Denver Rotary Club Foundation as we prepare and inspire young people to own their future economic success. Together we can empower students to break through self-imposed boundaries, discover their enterprising spirit and learn the knowledge and skills they will need to compete for jobs.
Specifically, Denver Rotary Club Foundation is making a real difference in the lives of young people like Carole Smith. As a student with a dream to be an artist, Carole did not initially think that business was for her. However, she challenged that thought and participated in JA for multiple years, determined to learn the business side of being an artist. Today, Carole owns her own online art business and credits JA with giving her the skills, tools and confidence she needed to become an entrepreneur. Carole is now a JA volunteer as well!
Thanks again for your generous support and for helping make our children’s dreams a reality!

Community Resources, Inc. is supported by a $4,000 grant from our Denver Rotary Club Foundation for 2019-20
On behalf of Community Resources and the children and families we serve, I want to thank you and the Foundation for your continued support of our work with students and mentors. I wish you had the chance to get to know some of the students whose lives you have changed. It would bring both smiles and tears.
All the best,
Sue Edwards, Executive Director
Since 1946, Denver Kids, Inc. has been supported by more than $4.4 Million in grants from our Denver Rotary Club Foundation.
You made our day! I can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support of our work to combat the dropout crisis and end the cycle of generational poverty in our Denver Public Schools community. We are constantly humbled by the contributions and opportunities our volunteer mentors, community partners and donors have made to encourage the successful development of the whole child.
Here at Denver Kids, our goal is to make sure that every student counts, every student graduates. While we served approximately 1,000 Denver Public Schools students last year with our educational counseling program, the fact is that 20 students are added to the wait list per month. There is an overwhelming need and we could not do this important work without you.
Thank you for your generous donation of $559.14 from Trivia Night, to support our summer programs. It will go a long way to help us empower our young people to become contributing members of the community, and end the cycle of generational poverty one family at a time.
Michelle Maldonado, Director of Development
On behalf of PROJECT C.U.R.E., thank you for your generous gift. Your commitment to Delivering Health and Hope to the World is truly appreciated. Each year, we deliver more than $60 million worth of medical supplies and equipment to under served hospitals and clinics around the world. These resources provide health and healing to tens of thousands of people who need it desperately.
It is because of supporters like you that we have been able to strengthen health care facilities, transform communities and save lives for 27 years. Your donation of $1,000 to help pay for costs associated with vandalism to our trucks is greatly appreciated. Thanks to the World Community Services committee of Denver Rotary, we are now able to put locks on the catalytic converters in our trucks to prevent this from happening again. We are honored by the confidence you have placed in us and hope you will continue to support our ongoing worldwide efforts to bring quality health care to those who need it most.
With sincere thanks,
W. Douglas Jackson, PhD, JD, President & CEO
