A portion of the scholarship fund is thanks to JBS which for the second year in a row, as part of their Hometown Strong initiative, joined the Foundation with a $50,000 donation towards the 2023 scholarships.
“This year, with the help of JBS, we were able to award $5,000 to 25 students in support of their academic goals,” commented Nyla Bristow, Greeley Stampede Foundation Chairman. “We are thrilled at the growth of the Foundations mission to support our community and students pursuing higher education by awarding scholarships and grants.”
Funding for the Foundations scholarships comes from events the Greeley Stampede produces and hosts including the Big Buckle Ball, Western Art Show, and the Stampede Golf Tournament as well as funding from the Greeley Stampede Old Buckers organization.
