Central Peaks Region
$40,000 matching grant to support the Boys & Girls Club of Fremont County
The Central Peaks Regional Council continues to focus on youth health and wellness. The Council frequently funds local health providers, youth development initiatives, and organizations that assist young people in reaching their full potential. Since the Council’s inception in 2006, it has funded Boys and Girls Clubs in Chaffee, Park, and Fremont counties. The Boys and Girls Clubs offer year-round programming to youth that focus on the development of body, mind, and spirit. The Boys and Girls Club of Fremont County is a recent addition to the clubs that support the four-county region. In 2010, the Council chose to support this club through a matching grant of $40,000 to assist in establishing the club in Cañon City. An overwhelming amount of community support allowed the club to raise the matching funds within three months of being notified of the matching grant.
