Our Vision & Our Mission

Empowering Rural Colorado's Schools and Students

It takes a village to raise a child

We believe everyone should have access to education. Rural communities epitomize the “villages” that raise our children; however, due to the size of the population and/or the remoteness of the town, rural schools and districts are often overlooked when it comes to providing opportunities and resources for students.  It’s our mission at the Nathan Yip Foundation  to provide financial support to rural schools and teachers to help provide equitable and innovative opportunities for students in rural Colorado. By providing  resources and connections to teachers, schools and districts in rural Colorado, we hope to positively impact the educational trajectory of rural Colorado communities.

Strengthening Rural Schools

Global Hearts, Local Roots

While education is widely regarded as a universal language, we recognize that rural communities face unique issues.

In the rural communities we serve throughout Colorado, we take the time to understand the people, cultures, and challenges that shape the landscape. By collaborating with the local communities, we share ownership of our projects to ensure a sustainable and enduring impact.
