Renown Health issued a request for proposals on June 18th and had anticipated funding 8 organizations. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee at Renown Health was impressed by the community response and chose to support all 56 applications.
We are proud to announce we are one of 56 nonprofit organizations chosen by @RenownHealth for a grant to support organizations working on projects aiming to increase the presence and participation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LBGTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people of low socioeconomic status, and other underrepresented groups. Thank you to Renown and the other nonprofits in our community fighting the good fight for diversity, inclusion and cultural competence.
This is funding to create the second open ski day for any child with a disability to come experience Sky Tavern. We did this very successfully previously by inviting the Newton School to come visit in an open house setting. Now we will carry this forward again and find more kids that never thought they would be skiing and teach them how. Details as we get closer to winter.
