The Real, Measurable Impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
An independent national research organization undertook a third-party study of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America agencies and their real impact on the community. The study found that participation in the program lowered the chance that young people would use illegal drugs by 46 percent and abuse alcohol by 27 percent. In addition, program participants were 52 percent less likely to skip school and 33 percent less likely to engage in violent behavior. The children in the study also demonstrated a greater degree of confidence in the classroom and forged stronger relationships with their family members.
The study concluded that the primary factor dictating such dramatic transformation was the organization’s unique one-on-one matching system. The Big Brothers Big Sisters program does not make random matches. Instead, staff members aim to create matches suited to the specific needs of each child. These sorts of matches encourage lasting relationships between the youths and their mentors. In general, the Big Brothers Big Sisters approach provided for longer matches and more time spent together while matched. These factors varied greatly among other mentorship programs that the research organization studied.

ACE Scholarships Celebrates 15 Years of Success
This year, ACE Scholarships celebrates 15 years of dedicated service to the children of Colorado. Co-founded by Alex Cranberg, Ed McVaney, Ralph Nagel, and others, ACE has raised more than $30 million since its inception to allow children throughout the state to have a greater voice in where they study. Each year, ACE grants more than 12,000 scholarships to children from underserved families. The overwhelming majority of grant recipients live in the Denver metro area. Over the course of 15 years, the organization has also forged strategic partnerships with 155 private schools in Colorado. These partnerships connect grantees to opportunities at the schools that best fit their needs.
Over the years, ACE has made a tangible impact on the Denver community. In 2000, students from inner-city and low-income areas had a 50 percent chance of graduating. Today, that figure has increased to 56 percent and continues to rise. At the same time, ACE has a great deal of work still to accomplish. At present, ACE private partner schools have 10,500 empty seats, which highlights the challenges the organization still needs to overcome to inform parents about the opportunities to pursue private education.
Mural Restoration at the University of Denver Reiman Theater
Dedicated in 1929 to the historic Margery Reed Hall at the University of Denver Daniels College of Business, the Reiman Theater was set to undergo a renovation that included the commission of a replica of the original mural in the building. In 2007, an art curator at the University of Denver discovered that the original mural still existed under several layers of black paint. The mural was painted by John Edward Thompson, a faculty member at the university who is considered one of the most influential modern artists in Colorado. A year after the mural’s initial unveiling, Walter Sinclair, the director of theater at the time, covered it in paint, giving rise to the belief that it had been destroyed.
Over the course of seven years and through the effort of many students and conservation professionals, the mural has been completely restored. Celebrating one of the most famous figures in English theater, William Shakespeare, the mural provides a wonderful frame for the Reiman Theater, which is now open to the public. Thompson’s work is currently one of the most prized assets of the University of Denver art collection.

Scott Reiman Supports ACE Scholarships in Denver
Scott Reiman: Every Child Deserves a Great Education For Scott Reiman, it’s all about investing for the future. From his early investments in Denver real estate to his support of ACE Scholarships, and myriad projects in between, the motivation is the same: invest in what works and in what lasts.
Scott and his wife Virginia learned about ACE Scholarships almost a decade ago. “I met Alex [Cranberg, ACE’s founder] at a Boy Scouts breakfast in 2005,” Scott Reiman told us during a recent conversation at the ACE offices. “I was immediately impressed with what ACE was doing and wanted to be involved.” It comes as no surprise that Scott was introduced to ACE while supporting another non-profit in town. He’s been actively involved in the community all his life, first in Milwaukee, where he was born and raised, and then in Denver, when he moved to Colorado to attend college.
“My Dad taught us to give back at an early age and it was never something you do as an afterthought; it is part of the job,” Reiman says. “I joined the board of the Denver Dumb Friends League in my mid-twenties and I have tried to give as much of my time to charity as possible ever since.” “Virginia and I focus a great deal on education; it’s at the heart of all our philanthropy.” The Reiman Foundation also gives generously to programs that advance children’s initiatives, health care and the arts. In addition to serving as a Trustee of ACE, Reiman was a founding board member of the Denver Scholarship Foundation; he’s a University of Denver (DU) Trustee and sits on the board of Graland Country Day School, the Denver Art Museum, and the Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Network. In addition to instilling a sense of community in Scott, his dad also gave him the “fire in the belly,” as he calls it, to own his own business. “My father was a serial entrepreneur,” Scott says. “He built his own publishing business from scratch and, while he eventually did very well, our childhood was not unlike that of most American kids in the Midwest.” Scott comes from a large family. They all grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, attended public schools, and enjoyed a classic middle-America upbringing.
After attending school in Wisconsin, Scott moved to Denver to finish college at DU, where the Reiman School of Finance now bears his name. “I immediately fell in love with Colorado,” Scott says, “and knew I’d make Denver my home.”

Great Clips donates to Children's Health Colorado
Scott Reiman has always been proud to be associated with Children's Health Colorado. Which is why he was delighted by the news that Great Clips was donating close to $50,000 to Children's.
The $46,000 they donated was funded by employees and customers in just five weeks.
"Dollar by dollar, five dollars by five dollars, a lot of the stylists donated their time for a 'cutathon' to help raise these funds as well," said Stafford.
These small donations are already doing big things.
"It frees up a Giraffe Omnibed for the tiniest and the most fragile babies, and this helps to keep our babies that are a little bit larger warm and cared for correctly in the best piece of equipment possible," said Stafford.

Denverites took to the ice in bathrobes, flannel pants and general sleepwear in an effort to raise money and awareness for homelessness in Denver.

Good news! Almost all 16th street arrests are for nonviolent crimes
It's a common misconception that downtown Denver is dangerous, but a tiny portion of the arrests along the 16th Street Mall last year were for violent crimes. Mostly, people were picked up for shoplifting, public intoxication, smoking marijuana, panhandling, trespassing, urinating or spitting. According to the Denver Post, less than 5 percent of arrests were for aggressive or hostile crimes, including assaults, possession of weapons or making threats. Scott Reiman is proud to be a part of the Downtown Denver Partnership.
