Funding for the Blue Valley Ranch Youth Fund

The funding for the Blue Valley Ranch Youth Fund was made possible by a generous donation from Blue Valley Ranch. Specifically these dollars are the proceeds from the Safe Highway 9 Project and the aggregate production proceeds. Without this commitment from Blue Valley Ranch and their commitment to Grand County Youth this fund would not be possible.
