At AH Jobs List, we will be taking time to reflect on all the blessings in our lives; thankful for a wonderful family, for our health, for living in the greatest state in the nation, for terrific friendships and of course, I'm thankful for your continued support.
At the southern edge of Cherry Creek Reservoir, my wife and I regularly take our kids for a stroll on a trail through the park. This time of year, Mother Nature’s seasonal clock is on full display as the trees are bare and, other than the geese, most of the birds have migrated south. We are fortunate, however, to see foxes, hawks, eagles, deer and the occasional coyote on our walks.
And even on the coldest days, it is a treat and an adventure to bundle up the kids with layers of sweaters, coats, hats, gloves, socks and boots and chase each other along the trail knowing there’s always hot chocolate and a warm blanket waiting for us at home.
One important thing that awakens during the weeks leading up to the holidays is the call to charity.
It’s a natural connection. I know for me and for many others, the layers of warmth and protection we enjoy during the winter is also a good reminder of the harsh reality of those who are struggling: the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the sick, the unemployed, those who are facing personal loss and other fears and worries. This time of year, more than any other time, invites us — almost insists — that we not only recognize the difficulties of others, but to respond to that very loud call to action to do something about it.
Our community's nonprofit organizations provide services and assistance to those who need hope in their lives the most. They are the on the front lines of managing the fallout of lackluster government support, providing everything from affordable health care, senior services, job training and education, after-school programs, meals for those who are hungry and much, much more.
But it continues to be an anxious time - terrifying, actually - for charitable nonprofit organizations.
Every day, nonprofits are getting the bad news that funding streams they have relied on for important programs are being cut. Foundations, whose investments fund their philanthropic giving, have taken a hard a hit. Government grants have been pared down. Once generous corporations have shifted their philanthropic giving strategies and have reeled in even-relatively-small commitments for event sponsorships and table purchases at fundraising breakfasts and dinners.
And while cuts in funding to nonprofits are unprecedented, ironically we see an INCREASE in demand for these important services.
This 'catch 22' situation nonprofits find themselves in is frustrating to say the least.
Yet the committed professionals and volunteers march on, creating new donation strategies and stretching their limited dollars with new efficiencies most corporations would envy. They are looking under every rock for new revenue streams to help fund their programs that are needed now more than ever.
This year, as we sit down with our families and friends to celebrate another year of blessings and begin to prepare ourselves for new beginnings, I encourage you to give thanks through a contribution to one of the more than 20,000 nonprofit organizations in Colorado. Ask your friends, your family or your company to match your donation. If you can't give, discover a way to volunteer at a local nonprofit. These charities are the lifeblood of our communities and their committed and compassionate staffs and volunteers are on the front lines of solving some our communities most difficult challenges.

If you read the Denver Post on Friday, you might have seen an article entitled, "Colorado arts group that get it right." Leading the list was El Sistema, a local nonprofit organization that is bringing music education to underserved students.
El Sistema is looking for an Executive Director on AH Jobs List! Read more about this amazing organization and the job below.
Our Purpose: El Sistema Colorado (ESC) is part of a visionary world movement transforming the lives of children and their communities through music; a new model for social change. Our mission is to empower children by providing an intensive music program that teaches the importance of teamwork, promotes self-confidence, and instills the value of social responsibility.
What We Do: El Sistema Colorado uses ensemble music to transform the lives of low-income youth in the Denver metro area. We are unique in using music in a whole-child approach as a tool for school readiness, cognitive, emotional and social development, academic success and graduation, as well as positively impacting families and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Low income children are typically denied the educational and developmental opportunities available through music, as their schools focus on "the basics" to raise test scores. Deprived of the joy and engagement opportunities that come from more enriching activities, at-risk youth feel less engaged in school and the achievement gap that separates them from their more privileged peers only grows.
El Sistema Colorado (ESC) launched its first program in January 2012 at Garden Place Elementary in the Globeville neighborhood, serving 100 youth. We now also serve students at Swansea Elementary School and Bruce Randolph Middle & High Schools. Each school year, ESC provides in-school, after-school and summer programming to more than 700 students from Early Childhood Education through 12th grade.
El Sistema Colorado
The Executive Director is the chief professional leader of El Sistema Colorado, a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center. The E.D. is responsible for the overall management and administration of El Sistema Colorado (ESC) and creating and implementing the development strategy to achieve ESC's fundraising goals. This includes leveraging key relationships and contacts within and outside the Denver Metro area to maintain and grow income streams. Other areas of responsibility include supervision of program planning and evaluation, policy planning, personnel and fiscal management, marketing, community engagement and public relations. This is a full-time, salaried position with benefits. It is hired by and directly accountable to the board of directors. READ MORE>>>>>>>
