What difference can a small nonprofit — operating without staff but only with a hard-working Board of Directors — make?
Immigrant Pathways Colorado is a prime example. Founded in 2009, this community-supported nonprofit makes self-development grants to low-income, documented immigrants. It also makes scholarships available each year for immigrant students studying at Arapahoe Community College.
Since it began making these grants in 2012, IPC has given more than $98,600 to immigrants to help them build a better life for themselves and their families. And the ability to make these grants comes completely from the community!
IPC receives no state or federal funding, just donations from the community and grants from organizations such as FirstBank, Littleton Rotary Foundation, Spring International Language Center, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and the Credit Union of Colorado Foundation.
You can help IPC make important self-development grants and scholarships by donating at www.ImmigrantPathways.org, by donating at any time of the year at www.ColoradoGives.org, or by making a direct deposit via Zelle.
