Monthly member-led event programming from November through June.
To cover these costs for 2020-21 we asked every participating family to contribute $25/year if possible; larger and smaller donations are gladly accepted.
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.
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 for 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.
for general operating and outreach costs
It costs the organization about $5,000 a year to operate, beyond our Retreats and Gatherings. We appreciate your contribution! You're keeping the organization running.
Taya Bruell Educational Fund
The Taya Bruell Educational Fund honors the memory of PGR member Taya Bruell by providing education regarding the intersection of giftedness and mental health issues. Taya was brilliant, talented, charismatic, beautiful, imaginative, creative, and fun. She loved to write and wanted to either be a surgeon, a writer, or both. She battled bravely against the undiagnosed Borderline Personality Disorder that slowly consumed her brain and ultimately led to her tragic death by suicide in 2016 at age 14.
The fund's goal is to help families recognize mental health needs in gifted people, find resources to address these needs, and support those who need such services. This project includes suicide awareness and prevention. This work is funded and is in development thanks to PGR members, the PGR Board, and Taya's family and friends. Please consider a gift to the fund if you have an interest in supporting this important work. To read more about Taya Bruell, click here for an article from the Born This Way Foundation.
