Breaking Good News NoCo

 

We share a common goal for Northern Colorado – to make it, and keep it, an extraordinary place to live, work, and raise our families; and to take pride each time we answer the question, “Where are you from?”

Behind that pride stand people with big hearts, committed to making our way of life possible. They are the visionaries who invest in our future by supporting, contributing, and collaborating.

This is philanthropy. And it's worth celebrating.

 

Bruce DeBoskey will present the keynote address
"Strategic Philanthropy: lessons learned and best practices for lasting impact"

DeBoskey writes the Chicago-Tribune News Service syndicated column “On Philanthropy” that appears in over 600 newspapers, including the Sunday Denver Post. His specialty is working with families, individuals, businesses, and foundations to design and implement thoughtful philanthropic strategies to achieve meaningful impact for themselves and their communities.

Mile High United Way President Christine Benero shares “It is rare to find someone who combines a deep technical understanding of the field of philanthropy with personal experience, passion, and soaring inspiration – but that is exactly who Bruce DeBoskey is and what he does when he delivers a keynote address.” Read more.

The Community Legacy Award is given annually to a Northern Colorado family that demonstrated philanthropy and volunteerism through multiple generations. We’re proud to announce this year’s honoree is the Wayne and Phyllis Schrader Family.

 

The Schrader Family

For the past 80 years, Schrader Oil Co. has provided petroleum products  throughout Northern Colorado. For four generations, the Schrader Family has built its business on a philosophy of community partnerships and meaningfully giving back to a wide variety of nonprofits.  The Schraders model and teach the importance of philanthropy, not only throughout their family, but also to their employees.

The Founders Award  recognizes individuals and families who have provided exceptional leadership, both to the Community Foundation and our region. The award celebrates the crucial role leadership plays in strengthening nonprofits and creating dynamic communities.

 

The Sutherland Family

The Foundation is truly honored to present the 2018 Founders Award to the Sutherland Family for its exemplary leadership, both as dedicated volunteers and as philanthropists.  The Sutherlands have been contributing to Fort Collins nonprofits since the 1960s. Upon returning in 1991 after Tom’s captivity in Beirut, Jean and Tom expanded their family’s investment in and commitment to the Northern Colorado community, utilizing philanthropy to enhance our region’s quality of life.
