Impact That's Transformative

Learn how Gary Community Investments is working together with our investees and partners to improve the lives of Colorado’s
low-income children and their families.

Our Framework

We intend to invest our assets into the community by 2035.

To accomplish our sunsetting goal of fully investing all of GCI’s assets into the community by approximately 2035, we are challenged with creating, supporting and monitoring a portfolio of investees that is creating transformative change for Colorado’s low-income children and their families.

Through our impact management practice, we are able to assess the success of both our individual investments and our total investment portfolio and better understand the progress we’re making toward our vision.
