February, 2018: News from the Board

Happy New Year from BabiesNow! Foundation!  I am amazed by how quickly January has sped by and am excited to be one month closer to our Spring Grant Cycle.  Our deadline for applications is April 1st  - right around the corner.

Are you or do you know someone in the Denver area who’s looking for help providing diapers to needy babies? Please check out the grant information and application at www.babiesnowfoundation.org.  Grants received by April 1 will be reviewed in May and dispersed immediately afterward.  

All applications are reviewed by the Board of the Babies Now! Foundation board.  We are delighted to welcome Kasey Johnson, who joined our board in December 2017.  Kasey is a mother and an attorney with Rollin Braswell Fisher LLC.  Kasey’s interest in BabiesNow! Foundation began when she met our founder Roberta Greengard in 2009 and became a supporter.  Motherhood deepened her understanding of the critical need for help by families in need. As an active member of our community she brings professional expertise, fresh eyes, and a commitment to improve access to diapers and wipes for local families.

Other changes to the Board include Martine Wells elected to be our secretary, and Justine Jankowski elected to serve as treasurer.

All seven women on our board amaze and impress me.  With such a broad set of skills, we continue to find ways to support the babies and families of Denver, Colorado.  We couldn’t achieve and expand our mission without the enthusiasm and financial support of our donors.  Plans for 2018 fund-raising opportunities are in progress and promise family- and network-friendly events to meet new friends and help make a difference in the greater Denver community.

Stay tuned!
