SKY RANCH FOUNDATION℠ AWARDS GRANT TO BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF ROSEBUD

SKY RANCH FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANT TO

BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF ROSEBUD

October 2021

It has been a decade since Sky Ranch for Boys, a residential treatment facility for at-risk youth, was closed and sold.  Proceeds from that sale, as well as donations from the Beverage Alcohol Industry, enabled the Foundation to continue our work by awarding grants to organizations with the same goal, helping these youth through a multitude of rehabilitative services.

Over the past 10 years the Foundation has awarded well over $4 million in grants. One such organization is the Mission, South Dakota-based Boys & Girls Club of Rosebud (rosebudbgc.org). Todd county was recently ranked by USA Today as the second worst place to live in the U.S., offering a most daunting challenge at the start.

Youth from the Rosebud Reservation are picked up daily from school and spend three hours at the club. A host of activities are offered with the main focus on academics-a holistic approach. Their belief is that their organization empowers youth to be the future leaders of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.

Foundation President, Ralph Aguera states, “All of us at the Foundation are proud to help this organization grow to serve the countless at-risk youth of Rosebud. We have seen their Clubs grow (now three locations), enabling more youth to be reached.”

SKY RANCH FOUNDATION℠ AWARDS GRANT TO YOUTH ON THEIR OWN

August 2021

It has been a decade since Sky Ranch for Boys, a residential treatment facility for at-risk youth, was closed and sold.  Proceeds from that sale, as well as donations from the Beverage Alcohol Industry, enabled the Foundation to continue our work by awarding grants to organizations with the same goal, helping these youth through a multitude of rehabilitative services.

Over the past 10 years the Foundation has awarded well over $4 million in grants. One such organization, Tucson, AZ-based Youth on Their Own (Yoto.org), was awarded a grant this year.

Every year, more than 62,000 children throughout Arizona find themselves displaced and unaccompanied through no fault of their own, ranking Arizona as the fifth worst state nationwide for child homelessness. For over 35 years, Yoto has supported this demographic by providing financial assistance, basic human needs, guidance and more, remarkably assisting more than 20,000 such youth toward high school graduation.

 

From Left to Right are Bethany Neumann, Director of Development & Communications and Elizabeth Slater, Chief Executive Officer, with Yoto

Marissa Washington, Senior Grants Manager for Yoto notes, “Sky Ranch Foundation’s℠ generous $12,500 grant helped 27 youth experiencing homelessness in Tucson, AZ stay in school by providing them with direct financial support!”

Foundation President, Ralph Aguera states, “We commend Yoto and their staff who work tirelessly to ensure that these youth have the opportunity to successfully complete their education. We are proud to have been instrumental in furthering their continued success”.

January 2021

Now in our 60th year, Sky Ranch Foundation ℠ continues our efforts to support our nation’s at-risk youth.  With contributions received from the Beverage Alcohol Industry, the Foundation reflects upon the many organizations which we have, in some small way, helped to achieve that goal.  To-date, more than $3.9 million has been awarded.

In 2020 we were able to award some funding. One such benefactor is Atlanta, GA-based The Orange Duffel Bag Initiative (theODBI.org) which recently shared a story written by their Fall 2020 ODBI graduate, Daniella Molina. Daniella’s journey through the ‘system’ is both heart-wrenching and heart-warming. Please visit the Sky Ranch Foundation site on Facebook (@doribryant4) to read Daniella’s story.

In 2021, we continue our efforts to assist our nation’s at-risk youth.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: NOTICE OF FRAUDULENT POSTING

October 2020

It has come to our attention that an organization claiming to be a charity, Global Development Initiative Grant (gdig.org), is currently posting a letter showing their ‘President’, Olivia Hall, receiving a $150,000 grant from Sky Ranch Foundation. (https://gdig.org/our-funders/).

The woman in the photo is actually the Executive Director of San Francisco-based Legal Services for Children, an organization the Foundation gave a grant to in 2019 and the man in the photo is their Development Director. It would appear that GDIG placed their logo on our letterhead.

Sky Ranch Foundation has never given a grant to this organization. The amount they allege was given to them is much larger than any of the grants we would give.

SKY RANCH FOUNDATION℠ MARKS SIXTY YEARS OF SERVICE

June 2020

July 2020 marks the 60th year since the Sky Ranch Foundation was started.  In these six decades, and with great thanks to, and support from, the Beverage Alcohol Industry and other sources, the Foundation has awarded more than $3.6 million in grants, touching the lives of thousands of our nations’ at-risk youth to help them achieve a better life.

Originally, Sky Ranch Foundation’s ℠ SKY RANCH FOR BOYS® had been helping young people to rehabilitate their lives. Closed in 2011, SKY RANCH FOR BOYS® was a campus and working ranch located on the South Dakota/Montana border.  During its first 50 years, the Foundation membership focused on supporting the Ranch. In light of an economic trend toward community based alternatives, the Foundation leadership shifted its focus with a pledge to provide grants to quality programs delivering assistance to at-risk boys and girls, continuing the good work pioneered at SKY RANCH FOR BOYS®.  Since 2011, the list of organizations which have received funding from the Foundation has continued to grow (link here).

Sadly, due to Covid 19 and the present economic conditions the Foundation is not in a position to award any grants this year. We will continue to monitor the economic situation and should things improve the Foundation will make decisions to grant funds at a later date, based solely-upon the LOI’s already received at the end of February 2020.

SKY RANCH FOUNDATION℠ AWARDS GRANTS TO CHICAGO-BASED URBAN INITIATIVES AND SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES OF ILLINOIS

February 2020

Sky Ranch Foundation is fast approaching our sixth decade of assisting in the rehabilitation of at-risk youth. With contributions received from the Beverage Alcohol Industry, the Foundation reflects upon the many organizations which we have, in some small way, helped to achieve that goal.  To-date, more than $3.6 million has been awarded. At our most recent board meeting held in July 2019, these fine organizations received grants.

For more than 30 years, SOS Children’s Villages of Illinois (sosillinois.org) has provided safe, stable, loving homes to foster children in an individual home under the care of a full-time, professional Foster Parent. SOS Children’s Villages International, the parent organization, began in Europe in 1945, providing aid to children orphaned or abandoned during World War II.  Now with 3 Villages in Illinois, the most recent being Roosevelt Square, one more step awaits completion—the Roosevelt Square Village Community Center. Of note, SOS Children’s Villages was just awarded a four-star rating by Charity Navigator, the highest rating given to nonprofits.

Established in 2003, the Urban Initiatives (urbaninitiatives.org) approach is to empower Chicago’s at-risk youth to become community leaders through academic success, healthy living, and social-emotional learning by heightening the inherent power of sports and teamwork. Grants from Sky Ranch Foundation are directed to their Take the Lead program, now counting 200 youth in 40 schools, a 60% increase since the program began in 2014.

Peggy Donovan, Foundation Vice President, notes, “Both of these organizations have excelled beyond our expectations. Impressively, in just a few short years, each has substantially grown in the number of at-risk youth served in the greater Chicago area.  We congratulate them and thank them for their service to this community. ”

January 2020

It’s a new year and Sky Ranch Foundation℠ is fast approaching our sixth decade of assisting in the rehabilitation of at-risk youth.

To-date, more than $3.6 million has been awarded. At our most recent board meeting held in July 2019, Sacred received a grant.

Overland Park, Kansas-based Sacred’s (kidsaresacred.org) mission is to eradicate the financial fear and stress that a family may feel when a loss of income is caused by child sexual abuse.

Sacred has impacted 55 families and163 children in 2019 and both continue to grow.

John D’Attoma, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and Carol D’Attoma, President and Executive Director of Sacred
