Recently, The Pando Initiative was awarded a generous grant from our friends at IMA to support our financial literacy program, Reality U.

When The Pando Initiative first launched Reality U in 2002, we were only serving a few local schools, and now with community support, we are able to continue our growth into middle schools in addition to adding new schools throughout Kansas regularly.

Implementing these fundamental skills at an earlier age helps us to provide a “reality check” for students and provide them with the tools they need to steer them down a path to a successful future.

Behind the scenes of Reality U are sponsors, volunteers, teachers, school principals, counseling staff, and communities that work tirelessly to bring this much needed program to kids in schools around Kansas. We are beyond grateful to IMA for their support and commitment to financial literacy with Pando.

If you're interested in bringing this program to YOUR school, or want to get involved as a volunteer, or sponsor, contact Patrick at
