Support Poudre Heritage Alliance on Colorado Gives Day!

By News

There are two weeks left until Colorado Gives Day! This state-wide day of giving on Dec. 8th unites all Coloradans in a common goal to strengthen the state’s nonprofits by giving to their favorite charities online.

Help the Poudre Heritage Alliance reach our goal of raising $2,000 in 24 hours to support programs that PROMOTE historical opportunities, ENGAGE people with the Poudre River & INSPIRE stewardship!

Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. It is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country.

Every donation made through on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the fund, which increases the value of every dollar. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

PHA Welcomes New Project Coordinator

By News

The Poudre Heritage Alliance (PHA) is excited to welcome Linden Pearsall as our new Project Coordinator. A local to Massachusetts, Linden graduated in 2020 with a degree in Hospitality Tourism Management, a minor in Sustainable Community Development, and a certificate in Sustainable Tourism. She completed two exchange semesters at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa and Mahidol University International College in Thailand. She went on to work in international education as a study abroad advisor for students – finding them a program based on their academic, personal, and professional goals. In this position, Linden went on to develop and write the Accessibility Abroad Handbook, a best practices guide for sending students with disabilities abroad. Linden joins the PHA after volunteering in Argentina and completing an internship for the National Park Service (NPS). Linden finds joy in diving headfirst into a project, and can typically be found working in her garden or visiting a unique museum.

Linden has already made a big impact at the organization, helping to create our newest program, the Study Outdoors, Learn Outdoors (SOLO) Field Trip program, during her NPS internship. We look forward to having Linden on our team, working to improve our efforts to PROMOTE a variety of historical and cultural opportunities, ENGAGE people in their river corridor and INSPIRE learning, preservation, and stewardship.
