Dear Friends,

Bill Daniels is remembered for his steadfast set of values — compassion, ethics, and integrity to name a few. He also believed in the power of hard work. To Bill, dedicating himself to working hard was about more than just the task at hand. A single person or an entire group stood to benefit from increased confidence, teamwork, and pride in a job well done.

Bill understood that hard work is key to the American Dream, and it always has been. Our Report to the 2016 Community highlights how we help create opportunities for people to realize this dream through hard work. As caretakers of Bill Daniels' legacy, all of us at the Daniels Fund strive to reflect his values in our work.

Bill left an extraordinary gift to the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming when he established his foundation. We are honored to know that our efforts are the continuation of his life's work.

For more information on the Daniels Fund and our recent initiatives, I invite you to read our annual report, available here.
