Celebrate your favorite nonprofit

Dear Editor:

March 3-9 has been chosen as Colorado Nonprofit Week! Nonprofit Week is statewide celebration of all the good work nonprofit organizations do for the people of Colorado. We have hundreds of nonprofit organization in our valley, all doing an amazing job of meeting the needs of our families and youth. On behalf of the Aspen Youth Center, I would like to thank all our donors and supporters for allowing the youth center to fulfill its mission.

I would also like to thank all the voters who voted “yes” on the Health Community Tax Fund. Because of your “yes” vote Pitkin County was able to award grants to 56 organizations in the total amount of $1,270,177 for 2008! I can’t think of any other community that can sustain the amount of nonprofit organizations that we do! We live in an incredible community. Thank you to everyone for supporting our valley’s nonprofits!

Robin Danell

board president, Aspen Youth Center
