YouthEntity gets Daniels Fund grant

YouthEntity received the most votes from volunteers who helped interview candidates for the Daniels Scholarship program at one of two western Colorado sites, receiving a $2,500 grant from the Daniels Fund for general operating support.

Local community leaders serve on the Daniels Scholarship program selection committee and interview candidates from the respective regions in the state. Volunteers are asked to vote for a Daniels Fund grantee organization in that region to receive a grant, which the Daniels Fund makes to honor and recognize their commitment and dedication.

“We are thankful for the community recognition and the grant award from the Daniels Fund, a valued partner that has allowed us to grow our personal financial literacy programs to youth in the Western Slope of Colorado,” said Executive Director Kirsten McDaniel.

YouthEntity is dedicated to helping the youth they serve to be job ready, career ready and life ready. Its goal is to engage and empower youth to discover their potential by providing real-world learning experiences. Through its programs, youth see how their collective efforts play out in real life, building their self-confidence and providing an authentic source of hope for their futures.

The Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming through its grants program, scholarship program and ethics initiative. Visit to learn more.
