Origin CPA Group is proud to support noteworthy local charities that are making a difference in Boulder and beyond. Our employee giving plan donates $1,000 to an employee-chosen charity of their choice each month.
Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado and Wyoming By Reese Vogel
- For January’s donation I chose the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado and Wyoming. Around 1 in 10 adults will have a seizure sometime in their life and 1 in 26 will develop epilepsy. In the United States alone around 3.4 million people have active epilepsy, which makes epilepsy one of the most common neurological conditions in the world.
- The foundation focuses on research and education about epilepsy to help individuals and their families, and their mission is to “lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives.” I chose the Epilepsy Foundation because I know firsthand just how scary epilepsy and seizures are and how disruptive they are in everyday life. I want to give back to help people find the same level care and support that I’ve received.
Mental Health America by Jade Arndt
- “With some help I choose Mental Health America to donate to for the month of December. Mental health, as we all know, is a crucial part of overall health and affects everyone. When those who are struggling are given the right tools and support it makes a world of difference.”
- Their Mission: Mental Health America (MHA)’s work is driven by its commitment to promote mental health as a critical part of overall wellness, including prevention services for all; early identification and intervention for those at risk; integrated care, services, and supports for those who need them; with recovery as the goal.”
Food Bank of the Rockies by Christine Prins
- I choose Food Bank of the Rockies to donate for the month of November. Unbelievably, 1 in 8 people in our Colorado communities are affected by hunger. Food Bank of the Rockies is the largest hunger-relief organization in the Rocky Mountain region, distributing more than 1.5 million meals every week and bringing help to those that need it the most. An important cause always but one that sticks especially close to my heart during this season when we seem to come together more frequently gathering around food (and family) in joy and celebration.
Mother House by Emily Hellwig
- “For our October donation I’ve chosen Mother House. They house and care for struggling and at-risk moms and their babies. They help them get back on their feet and provide support and resources to set them up for success once they leave!”
Western Resource Advocates by John Dicken
- “For our September donation I’ve chosen Western Resource Advocates. Their main office is located here in Boulder, but they work across most of the Mountain West. They primarily work to advance solutions to climate change in the region and to protect our air, land, water, and wildlife. The fall is such a great time of year here in Colorado, and for me anyway, a reminder on how important environmental conservation is.”
The Wild Animal Sanctuary by Emily Rivers
- “The monthly donation for July is going to The Wild Animal Sanctuary. The sanctuary was established in 1980 and now has over 600 residents including tigers, African lions, black bears, wolfs and more. The sanctuary that is open for visitation sits on 789 acres where some of the animals live. The Wild Animal Refuge is not open to the public, but is located on over 9,000 acres and hosts animals in natural habitats. The sanctuary has been rescuing “captive exotic and endangered large carnivores” living in people’s homes, yards, and other areas not fit for such animals. The goal of their program is to place animals in large acreage habitats where they can live out their lives as nature intended.”
- “For our June donation I chose Safe Shelter of St. Vrain Valley. This amazing organization is located in Longmont. Below is a little information on what they provide:
Safe Shelter provides a comprehensive system of programs and services to address the needs of individuals affected by Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, Human Trafficking and Teen Dating Violence. All of our services are free, confidential, bilingual (English/Spanish), bicultural, open and affirming, and available 24/7. We provide a 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelter, individual and group counseling, case management, legal advocacy, community and peer education, information and referrals.”
- “For May I chose International Midwife Assistance as our charity to donate to. Infant mortality rates are still unconscionable high in many parts of the world and women still do not have equal, if any, access to healthcare as well.”
- “I picked There With Care to donate to because it’s a local nonprofit that I’ve been volunteering with since I was 12. They provide services to families with critically ill children (groceries, transportation to doctor’s appointments, professional cleaning services so kiddos with compromised immune systems can safely go home, etc.), sometimes for years on end while kids are sick. They’re a really wonderful organization, and I was so excited to be able to provide them funds from our firm – thank you shareholders for making this happen!”
- “I chose the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to donate to this month. This is a nonprofit that has made a big difference in my own life. When I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 7 the JDRF offered a number of classes and programs that helped me and my family learn how to manage diabetes. Along with education they offer so much more to the community, such as – supplies for those who can’t afford it, research for a cure, and research on diabetic medical advancements to make life easier as a kid with diabetes. Since I was 7 I have participated in the Walk to Cure Diabetes hosted by the JDRF every year and it is a really great organization, I was so happy to be able to have our firm donate. Thanks so much to the shareholders for making this happen once again!”
- “I chose the Colorado Healing Fund as the recipient for April’s charitable contribution. The tragic events that occurred at the end of March have really impacted everyone in the Boulder community and beyond. I thought the Colorado Healing Fund would be a great choice in light of the events and provide much needed support to those effected.”
- “I have chosen Impact on Education as the recipient. From their website: “Impact on Education is committed to an equitable future for public education across Boulder Valley’s public schools. We equalize opportunity, bolster academic success, and galvanize community engagement to create lasting change. Through our investments, we address systemic barriers that impact students based on socioeconomic status, race, gender, class and other marginalized identities.” Thank you to the shareholders for making this happen.”
- “Last month KCPA donated to a great organization here in Colorado called Always Choose Adventures! Their mission is: To help people of all ages, backgrounds, skill levels, and physical abilities to access the outdoors, get off the couch and connect with others while doing so. I’m a big advocate of adventures and getting out in the world, so it was an easy pick for me because I believe everyone deserves new experiences!”
- “The Foundation recognizes all firefighters killed in the line of duty whether volunteer, career, union or non-union, structural or wildland. This fund has been established to aid families with services such as counseling and family support, legal aid, education assistance, job training, and has given multiple scholarships to the children of fallen firefighters. As I’m sure we all remember, 2020 saw the top three largest wildfires in Colorado’s history. With fire season upon us, let’s all keep these brave men and women in our thoughts and hope there are no casualties in any fire this year!”
- “For our October charity donation I have selected Roundup River Ranch. They offer fun camp experiences here in Colorado for children with serious illnesses.”
- “Hi all, for our October charitable giving I chose to have the firm donate to COLOR – Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights. I worked closely with them when I was doing nonprofit work in the past and they are a wonderful organization. They largely support the Denver Latinx community by allowing individuals and their families to access resources for health of mind, body and spirit. A few of my peers have benefitted in the past from their youth programs and have seen such positive change. Here is their website if you would like to look: https://www.colorlatina.org/”
- “A Precious Child will be the recipient of our charitable gift for November. A Precious Child provides disadvantaged, and displaced children with “cradle to career” support to break the cycle of poverty. Children and their families are referred to A Precious Child through 549 reputable agencies, across Colorado that have direct knowledge of their situations and needs. Once referred, families have access to A Precious Child’s many support programs. Precious Essentials, Basics for Babies, Inspiring Minds, Fill a Back Pack, and a Precious Gift, are just a few of the programs A Precious Child offers to ensure children have the necessities and support needed to succeed. In addition to the generous, monetary donation from Kingsbery, we will host a toy drive to help support the Precious Gift program. Precious Gift collects new toys, gift cards, and gifts (infant through high school) to distribute to kids who are the most in need of some holiday cheer. This program is unique in that they allow parents or guardians the opportunity to shop, free of charge, for gifts for their children. Allowing them the opportunity to choose gifts they know their kids will love, and actively participate in the celebration.”
- “ This organization has been serving the disenfranchised of East Boulder County for 50 years, through nutrition and healthy living support, advocacy, and community and family education. In addition, they run a food bank and thrift shop in Lafayette. Due to their service area, they have been uniquely positioned to serve the victims of the Marshall Fire, and have done just that. They have helped over 600 families with thrift store vouchers ($500/person), food, clothing, baby items, shelter, and gift card distribution.”
- “I figured it was fitting to pick 350 Colorado considering it is Earth Day. 350 Colorado is building the local grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis and transition to a sustainable future. They are called 350 Colorado because 350 ppm is the safe upper limit of CO2 in the atmosphere. Currently we are at 415 ppm and rising 2-3 ppm every year. Hopefully we can all do something to help out the environment this today/weekend and work on changing our daily habits. Happy Earth Day! https://350colorado.org/ “
