“The last year has been particularly hard on nonprofits, schools, families and children. It was important to us to recognize the many challenges faced and to reward those organizations that are doing their best to help those in need meet these challenges head-on,” said Mollie Bell, Ent’s Chief Development Officer.

Since it began in 2000, Ent YES grants totaling more than $1.6 million have helped nearly 240 Colorado nonprofits serve children of all ages in crucial and life-changing ways. Among other support services, YES grants have helped organizations throughout the state provide shelter for children facing abuse, put food on tables, foster education and literacy programs and much more.

“For more than 60 years, Ent has a legacy of giving back to the communities we serve. Now that we’re expanding throughout the Front Range, we want to mirror our geographic reach with our philanthropic reach by supporting our youth statewide,” Bell said.
