ARCS Colorado Chapter was honored as the winner of the 2021 Outstanding Service Organization in Colorado by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Colorado Chapter.  ARCS was nominated for this award by Jane Marsh, Senior Director of Development at the University of Colorado Boulder. 

ARCS was recognized as Colorado’s outstanding organization which has demonstrated outstanding commitment and impact through financial support and the encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles in philanthropy and community involvement.

Five members of our chapter attended the National Philanthropy Day in Colorado luncheon held in the Sewall Ballroom on November 12, 2021, enjoying the first in-person event many of us had attended in over a year and a half. The lunch was a celebration of a dozen outstanding individuals and organizations which have made significant contributions to improving the lives of others in Colorado.
