Colorado Gives Day starts in

Edgewater Collective

The biggest challenge in our area resides in our schools. 9 in 10 students in our schools are struggling against the roadblocks of poverty. Without placing the blame, we are building partnerships to make sure that every child in our zip code has a chance to succeed from cradle to career.
