Denver, CO—As part of its annual meeting, the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) will spend a day enhancing Green Valley Elementary School.
About 70 business and finance leaders from colleges and universities across the country will gather at Green Valley High School, 4100 Jericho St., Denver, on Saturday, July 16, from 9 am to 1 pm MT. The group will work on a variety of projects including painting in the kindergarten play area, building cubbies for classrooms, landscaping, and assembling toiletry kits for students in need.
"Green Valley Elementary is beyond grateful for the beautification project with NACUBO and sponsors,” Green Valley Elementary principal Jennifer Buckland said. “With your partnership, we will brighten up many spaces across our school community and provide educational resources to support our students and teachers along their journey."
In addition to work on site, NACUBO members and others may donate items Green Valley Elementary students need—from backpacks to playground balls.
“Making a positive impact on students is an integral part of the business officer profession and the NACUBO annual meeting,” said Monica Dillingham, chief technology officer at NACUBO. “After a hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are thrilled to be able to once again volunteer together and give Green Valley Elementary students a beautiful environment to come back to in the fall.”
The community service project is supported in part by corporate sponsors Northern Trust, Segal, Sodexo Campus, and TIAA. It is one of the first events during the NACUBO 2022 Annual Meeting, which will bring more than 1,600 higher education business officers to Denver from July 16-19.
NACUBO, founded in 1962, is a nonprofit professional organization representing chief administrative and financial officers at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the country. NACUBO works to advance the economic vitality, business practices, and support of higher education institutions in pursuit of their missions.
