Denver, CO—April 2020
At Great Western, we are committed to living our core values, inside and outside of the workplace. While we all grapple with the swiftly evolving landscape during these challenging times in our world, we believe that living and exemplifying these values is more important than ever. Supporting our communities through stewardship and partnerships has never been more important.
In February of this year, we continued our partnership with Make-A-Wish Colorado in supporting their “Kids for Wish Kids” program—a program that engages students across the state in a fundraising effort to support the many families that are awaiting a ‘wish’ through the Make-A-Wish organization. Make-A-Wish Colorado has been a part of our community for 40 years, and Great Western is proud to support these crucial efforts for Colorado’s families.
The “Kids for Wish Kids” program is important to us for many reasons—in addition to fostering the core mission and work of Make-A-Wish, we believe that engaging students across the state in these fundraising efforts develops leadership and values in the youth of today that will be the leaders of tomorrow. In matching the funds that these students raise, we support and encourage their efforts to be stewards in their own communities. And in turn, we are inspired by the creativity, commitment, and dedication of these youth as they selflessly raise funds to support friends and families in their communities.
Our world is an unpredictable place right now, to be sure; in the midst of the questions and uncertainty, we invite you to celebrate the small successes that will help all of us prove that we are resilient, and will come through this situation stronger and more united than ever.
Great Western is committed to our partners, and #CommittedToColorado.
