Donations are truly needed and shape our community.

PG Retreat needs your financial support! 

Please donate any amount, no matter how small. 

PGR raises funds for a variety of needs. The Taya Bruell Educational Fund honors the life of a younger member by building resources for education and emotional health support. Projects in her name are in development. The Loni Kaplan Memorial Scholarship offers scholarships to first time families for the cost of attendance so that they can meet and connect during our life-changing retreats. The Betty Maxwell Scholarship Fund offers returning families the opportunity to connect with PGR in person again for a lasting connection. For any questions please contact donation@pgretreat.com.

Thank you for your continued support.  All donations are tax deductible.

About Our Finances

PGR operates under the auspices of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and as such your donation will be tax deductible.  You will receive an email confirmation for your donations, and a mailed confirmation for any donation over $250 from the CNDC.

We are an organization of families volunteering to work together for each other.  We work hard to save money, to use resources carefully, and to steward financial resources with great care. Click to learn more about our finances.

2019 Donations Goal

Goal: $10,000.00
Collected: $0.00
The 2019 PG Retreat goal is to raise a combined $10,000 for the Taya Bruell Educational Fund, Loni Kaplan Memorial Scholarship, Betty Maxwell Scholarship Fund, and the General Fund. Each of these funds serve different purposes but all help the PG community to reach out and connect.

In Loving Memory of Loni Kaplan: The Loni Kaplan Memorial Scholarship

Loni Kaplan was the mother of four profoundly gifted sons and a key member of PG Retreat for many years. She served as the Event Director of the Glen Eyrie and Breckenridge events and as Chairman of PGR’s Board in 2012. Her passion was connecting people to others on a similar journey so that they could support one another in the raising of their amazing children.

To honor her deep commitment to connecting people, the Loni Kaplan Memorial Scholarship has been created to bring new families into the PG Retreat fold. The scholarship is available to families who have never attended a Retreat, so that they may come and meet like-minded people. In order to increase the likelihood that these families will be able to enjoy the life-changing experiences at a Retreat, the Loni Kaplan Memorial Scholarship will pay for up to the full cost of attendance at a PG Retreat.

The Betty Maxwell Scholarship Fund

This fund was created in honor of Betty Maxwell, a professional and personal advocate of PGR. In her previous role at the Gifted Development Center in Denver, Colorado, she helped to form PGR and the first several years of summer retreats.  In addition, many of our families are personally indebted to her work, her research, and her assistance with our own children as we began the path of raising PG children.

Taya Bruell Educational Fund

The Taya Bruell Educational Fund honors the memory of PGR member Taya Bruell by providing education for our members regarding mental health issues. The goal is to help our members recognize mental health needs, find resources to address these needs, and support those who need such services. This project includes suicide awareness and prevention. This Fund addresses the intersection between PG and mental health which is a subject that our organization hasn't focused on much historically and yet, it can affect us all. The fund will also explore the idea of providing education to mental health professionals so they can better understand what it means to be PG and how mental health issues may manifest in PG kids and adults. The goal of the fund is to record a series of Webinars to be hosted on our site for community enrichment and spread mental health awareness within the PG population.
