Great announcement to share form Project Self-Sufficiency!
"At Project Self-Sufficiency, we have the bold vision that every low-income, single parent in Larimer County is selfpowered to become self-sufficient. We cannot accomplish this vision alone, and we rely on the expertise and resources of our community partners to leverage our impact. We have many partners, including donors, nonprofit organizations, government, educational institutions, investors, businesses, and volunteers. Each year, we honor a key community partner with the Project Self-Sufficiency Vision Maker Award. Past winners of this award include:
2011        Janene Dellenbach
2012        Linda Clark
2013        Mary Fuller
2014        Tom Tonoli
2015        Friends of Project Self-Sufficiency
2016        Loveland Housing Authority
2017        Cindy Bragdon
2018        United Way of Larimer County WomenGive
We are thrilled to let you know that our team has chosen the Rotary Club of Fort Collins Foothills as the honoree for our 2019 Project Self-Sufficiency Vision Maker Award. Your club’s ongoing commitment of providing scholarships to our participants over the last 20 years has had remarkable impact on our single parents’ ability to successfully complete school and launch into their careers. Your vision of funding participants for multiple semesters, demonstrates a high level of understanding of the unique challenges faced by single-parent students. You walk alongside them until they reach the finish line, and this speaks to your “all-in” dedication to their success. We have greatly appreciated your partnership and impact in our work, and we look forward to celebrating your club this year at our 2019 Community Luncheon on Tuesday, March 26th at Embassy Suites."
Congratulations Foothills Rotary!
