Donor of the Month: Piton Foundation

Posted: February 7, 2018

Donor of the Month – Piton Foundation

In an effort to improve the lives of Colorado’s children and their families, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado is partnering with The Piton Foundation, which is part of Gary Community Investments, on our mentor2.0 program. As part of this partnership, The Piton Foundation is providing BBBSC with a 3-year grant to increase its capacity to serve at-risk high school students. In years 2 and 3, the foundation will match funds raised for mentor2.0.

Mentor2.0 is a technology-enhanced, school-based mentoring program that ensures at-risk high school students have the support needed to graduate high school prepared for post-secondary education and the workforce.

The Piton Foundation, which is part of Gary Community Investments, is a private foundation established in 1976 by Denver oilman Sam Gary. It is committed to making philanthropic investments in organizations that work to improve the lives of Colorado’s low-income children and their families.

Through this partnership, BBBSC and The Piton Foundation hope to increase high school and college graduation rates for low-income students in Colorado.
