Why do I work so hard to support this cause?
I overcame some serious challenges when I was a child thanks to the tremendous support and mentorship I received from some safe and trusting adult relationships. I am up for sharing my story one-on-one if anyone would like to hear it because my experience illustrates exactly what the Boys & Girls Clubs do for 10,000+ kids in the Denver area. The Clubs engage every child NOT as a problem to deal with, but as an opportunity with unlimited potential. This is why I have worked so hard to help this great organization since moving back to CO in 2010 and this is why I continue to serve on the organization's Board of Directors

How does a Colorado MPC employee donation of $1 result in $8.32 going to the Boys & Girls Clubs?
For any donations made on this site plus Marathon Petroleum's promised 60% match between now and November 22nd, I will personally match 100% up to $5,000. Marathon Petroleum will match 60% with NO LIMIT for all our donations by employees during this period. You save 50% of your donations in Colorado state tax deduction because the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit allows you to get a dollar for dollar deduction on your state taxes for donations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver.
Example of the math:
o You donate $200
o MPC match with $120 more
o I match with $320 more
o MPC match with $192 more
o You get $100 off your CO state taxes
o TOTAL = YOU ARE OUT OF POCKET $100 and $832 goes to the clubs!
