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.
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.
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 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 has not 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.
This work is funded and is in development thanks to the Taya Bruell family and friends.
