We are beyond thankful to KOCH for awarding The Pando Initiaitve with a generous grant for continued support of Reality U, Pando's financial literacy program. 

This fun and interactive simulation gives students a glimpse into what life could look like as a 26 year old. Each scenario includes a monthly income, credit card debt, as well as their marital and family status.

This event empowers students to make the connection of how their performance in school TODAY, impacts their future. Reality U is a continued success because of our volunteers, and financial supporters! Each full day of Reality U requires 96 volunteers that work with students at 12 booths representing services and/or products that adults typically must purchase or consider each month.

Each session provides an eye opening experience for students, staff and volunteers, and continues to grow due to community backing and leadership of our Reality U director, Patrick Sehl.

Thank you KOCH for all that you do for The Pando Initiative through funding, mentorship and more! We are thankful to have the support of community partners like you!
