What does Generosity Day mean to you?

By Katy Snyder, JVA Consulting

A day late is better than not all, right (although I am not sure if that saying goes for Valentine’s Day…)? We know we are a little late with our message, but we at JVA Consulting wanted to thank all of our clients, friends, mentors and colleagues for what they do to make the world a better place. On a daily basis, JVA gets to work with groups that are in the trenches, doing what we think is the most vital work that can be done—nonprofit work. From soup kitchens to those working with the elderly, the homeless, students, immigrants and refugees, we want to thank you for what you do to make our community better.

In the spirit of generosity, we wanted to open up this blog to you so that you can tell us who (or what) you are grateful for. We’d also love to hear how your nonprofit celebrated Generosity Day this year. Let us know by leaving a comment below.

And most of all, THANK YOU!

    I am so grateful for a day like Generosity Day, that sheds light on all the great work being done by nonprofits and individuals alike. Thank you to all our clients who treat each day like Generosity Day.

    I am thankful for the dedication and hard work by so many of my clients to make Denver Public Schools a district that serves and empowers students and families. Specifically, I am thankful for the hard work of leaders at Denver Public Schools and University of Denver who are working together to train aspiring principals and school leaders, so our children receive a better education. I am also thankful for the dedication of faculty and coaches affiliated with the University of Colorado Denver who are providing professional development to teachers and staff at Denver Public Schools and New America Schools to empower them to reach the needs of all students.

    I’m thankful for all the inspiring nonprofit leaders out there that continue to dedicate themselves to making the world a better place despite the obstacles and limited resources because they never let go of the belief that change is possible.

  5. I am grateful for all of the organizations that are promoting the importance of high-quality nutrition for optimal health and teaching people how easy it is to cook nutritionally-dense meals from scratch.

      Piggybacking off Lisa’s comment, we are grateful for all of the nonprofits that are working to get us moving. Walk Denver, for one, was just profiled (http://nyti.ms/yAzbND) in the NY Times for its efforts to get Denverites walking, and we also just posted (http://bit.ly/A1DkO1) a great funding opportunity for ChildObesity180 and the Partnership for a Healthier America Active Schools Acceleration Project to promote physical activity for kids.

  6. I am grateful to all of the wonderful young women who volunteer with Smart-Girl. It takes so many high school and college students to deliver our programs and we are very appreciative of their time. I’m also grateful to my wonderful colleagues who keep me laughing!
