Help Thorne Ensure NATURE FOR ALL!

Locally and across the country, low-income and Latino youth have less access to nature and the outdoors. We need your financial support to help ensure all youth in our community, regardless of race, ethnicity, or family income, have the opportunity to connect with nature.


Through its NATURE FOR ALL Initiative, Thorne awards in excess of $400,000 in camp scholarships and subsidized school programs to more than 7,000 youth from low-income and Latino families each year (approximately 50% of Thorne’s total participants).

In order to reach the youth in our community who need Thorne’s programming the most, we need your support. Tax-deductible donations to Thorne are used to fund after school programs and summer camp scholarships and are eligible for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit. CLICK HERE to learn how with the tax credit your donation to Thorne could cost you as little as 15 cents for every dollar donated.

If you are an individual, you can donate online using the link provided below! Individuals donating $500 or more (costs as little as $75 after tax deductions and credits) will be enrolled in Thorne’s EdVenturers Club. CLICK HERE to learn more about the EdVenturer Club. You can also become an “EdVenturer Forever” by making a planned gift to Thorne. CLICK HERE to learn more about Thorne’s Planned Giving program.

If you represent a corporation or foundation and would like to know more about opportunities to sponsor a Thorne program or event or to provide grant support, please e-mail or call 303.499.3647 x108.
