Edgewater Collective announced today that it has received a $50,000 Daniels Fund grant to support its Jefferson Success Pathway.
The Jefferson Success Pathway is a cradle to career initiative focusing community stakeholders and organizations around common goals and data indicators of student success. The focus is on students in northeast Lakewood, Edgewater and east Wheat Ridge that funnel into Jefferson High School. Edgewater Collective believes that by aligning all community stakeholders around a common vision and keeping them accountable to goals and indicators, all children can succeed from cradle to career.
“This generous grant from the Daniels Fund will provide a solid foundation for the Jefferson Success Pathway and ensure a great start for our work in seeing every child in our area succeed into a great career,” said Joel Newton, Executive Director.
Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need, established the Daniels Fund to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. For more information, please visit www.danielsfund.org.
