Our Impact in Rural Colorado

Over the past 7 years, the Nathan Yip Foundation has donated more than $985,000 to rural schools, districts and teachers.  By December 2023, after our Fall 2024 Rural Teacher Grants, we will have given more than $1,000,000 in support of rural Colorado education. We have reached more than 75 rural districts since 2016 and 200+ teachers in the last two years.  And we are just getting started.
