Colfax Marathon Fundraiser

Empowering students to achieve high school diplomas and beyond.

We are excited to announce the launch of our Colfax Marathon Fundraiser! Our goal is to raise $5,000 by May 20th to create a memorable celebration for graduating high school seniors. Your support will help us honor our students' achievements and give them the recognition and celebration they deserve.

Celebrating graduation motivates and inspires students to set higher goals and pursue further education and career opportunities. This event is important because it reinforces the belief that their efforts are valued and that they have the potential to succeed.

Donate today to help us make this year's graduation event truly special!


Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) Program

Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) is a community, supporting families moving from poverty to prosperity. JPP uses a holistic, multi-generation approach to help students earn diplomas and parents reach self-defined prosperity. 

On average, families engaged in JPP for a duration of four years have increased their annual income by $32,000.

JPP collaborates with community partners to provide programs that focus on financial literacy, family well-being, job skill development, health and wellness, education, and building social capital.
