Meet Our 2021 Chair | Diana Backstrom

“It’s an honor to Chair the 19th annual Nathan Yip Foundation celebration.  2021 is the Year of the Ox, a symbol of diligence and persistence. Even though this is my second time as Chair, 2021 represents a significant first.  It’s our first virtual celebration but we promise it will be as fun, colorful and engaging as all the past celebrations. 

I’m a long-time Denver resident and graduate of the University of Denver.  I’ve been employed in biotechnology for more than three decades and most of my work has focused on making children’s lives better.  I’ve volunteered with many incredible nonprofits over the years but none have tugged at my heart as much as the Nathan Yip Foundation. The work that is done at the NYF is meaningful, needed and life changing for our next generation. 
The educational and related needs of  underserved kids may be greater now than in recent times due to the pandemic. Covid-19 has placed unforeseen challenges on school systems and families. With the funds raised at the Year of the Ox Celebration, the Board will carefully fund projects that are most in need. Whether you’re an old friend or a first time attendee, I would like to personally welcome you to this phenomenal celebration and to the family.”
