Greenhouse Scholars is an educational nonprofit organization that wants students to feel the power of opportunity, choice and belief. They level the playing field so students of all backgrounds can live a life of their choosing. Their Scholars are outstanding college students from under-resourced families and communities who are determined to create a better future for us all.
Gresham Partners has supported Greenhouse Scholars since 2013, both financially and through the direct involvement of many members of Gresham’s team who have served as reviewers of Scholar-candidates, sponsors and mentors.
The exciting 2021 Glass Half Full Event fundraising event was hosted by Andra Pool, Chief Relationship and Community Officer, Jessica Hogan, Chief Operating Officer, and Reggie Rivers, a former Denver Bronco. The event shed light on “The World We Want” through the eyes of Scholars, mentors and sponsors, and how Greenhouse Scholars has helped Scholars achieve their dreams.
