Help homeless pets this holiday

Help homeless pets this holiday

It’s the season of giving and this includes giving back to our four-legged friends.

Through December 31, the Denver Dumb Friends League is taking donations to reach its goal of $1 million to help transform the lives of homeless and neglected pets throughout Colorado.

Donations make a real difference in the lives of these furry friends. In 2018, these contributions helped the DDFL bring in and care for more than 21,000 animals and provide services for over 25,000 dogs and cats.

The DDFL is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and works with the community to help homeless pets and end animal suffering.

Scott Reiman has been a longtime supporter of the DDFL. Without the compassionate support of community members like Reiman, it would not be able to serve and care for so many animals.

ACE Scholarships gives every student a choice and a chance

ACE Scholarships provides a choice

Scott Reiman contributes to ACE Scholarships and its mission to provide every student with the chance and every family with the choice to better their education.

“We are proud of what ACE has accomplished to date. Over the past 17 years, ACE has provided over 19,000 scholarships worth more than $42 million and has partnered with 149 schools throughout Colorado,” said Reiman. “These scholarships have proven to be a strong investment in Colorado’s future.”

For nearly 20 years, ACE has helped Colorado students living in underserved areas attend private schools and therefore expand their opportunities for the future.

As a result, 90 percent of ACE Scholars graduate high school while 73 percent earn a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Take Brittanie’s story below for instance. Hear how ACE gave her and her family the choice to have a say in her education and allow Brittanie to be herself at school. This is just one of the many examples of how ACE is making a difference for students and their families across the country.

Denver Art Museum Exhibit Shines Spotlight on Cross-Curation

The Denver Art Museum’s The Light Show exhibit highlights nearly 250 works of art from the DAM’s nine curatorial departments.

The exhibit is co-curated by Rebecca Hart, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Jorge Rivas Pérez, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Spanish Colonial Art.

This collaborative showing examines the physical and symbolic representations of light in art. The installation focuses on what the Denver Museum says is the “quest by humanity and artists to understand physical light in the natural world as well as metaphorical, spiritual and divine representations of light.”

Artworks on display include ancient sculptures, paintings, photography, textiles and contemporary installations.

The exhibit is included in general museum admission. Thanks to Scott Reiman and the Free for Kids program, general admission is free for youth ages 18 and under.

Get an inside peek at the exhibit with Lucas Samaras’ Corridor #2 Walkthrough below.

Reiman invests in ACE and the education of future generations

Scott Reiman invests in ACE and education.

For Scott Reiman, the time to invest in the education of future generations is now.

” target=”_blank”>Hexagon Chairman and CEO Scott Reiman, the time to invest in the education of future generations is now.

From early real estate investments in Denver to his role as ACE Scholarships Board of Trustees Co-Chairman, the purpose is always the same: invest in what works and what lasts.

ACE is a lasting investment. For nearly 20 years, the nonprofit has helped Denver students living in underserved areas attend private schools and expand their opportunities through school choice.

“We are proud of what ACE has accomplished to date. Over the past 17 years, ACE has provided over 19,000 scholarships worth more than $42 million, and has partnered with 149 schools throughout Colorado. These scholarships have proven to be a strong investment in Colorado’s future,” says Reiman.

ACE scholarship recipients are twice as likely to graduate from high school and attend college. In Colorado, the ACE Class of 2018 had a 98% high school graduation rate.

Still, there is more that can be done to support choice education for Colorado’s low-income students. While there are more than 380,000 low-income students throughout the state, nearly 11,000 seats remain empty at ACE’s partner schools.

The time is now for these students and ACE Scholarships’ Learning Can’t Wait 2020 Campaign, led by Reiman and fellow Co-Chairman Chris Wright, will ensure more than 1,000 Colorado students have the chance to pick the school that best fits them and sets them up for success.

With Reiman and Wright supporting the effort, ACE Scholarships is making its mark on the community and creating a long-lasting impact through school choice.
