Our Bright Futures Fund honors our 40th Anniversary and elevates our work in education through:

  • Creating paths to local careers in technical fields and trades
  • Increasing college scholarships for low-income students

Our longstanding partnerships with Summit School District and Colorado Mountain College provide a solid foundation for this special initiative that includes partnerships with local businesses.

We are proud to create this initiative to support students in gaining real-world skills for the workforce, obtaining college credits and/or industry certificates, and providing apprenticeships to create pathways to build their lives and families in Summit County.
