Nutrien Supports First-of-its-Kind Youth Campus in Loveland

United Way of Larimer County is pleased to announce that Nutrien Ltd. (TSX and NYSE: NTR) has made a $150,000 commitment to support the Loveland Youth Campus, a first-of-its kind child care and out-of-school hub for families in Loveland, Colorado. Nutrien’s investment will ensure more children have safe care and access to healthy foods through an onsite food pantry. Located at 2500 E 1st Street, the site formerly occupied by New Vision Charter School, is adjacent to one of Boys and Girls Clubs of Larimer County’s (BGCLC) flagship facilities.

“Collaborations, like how Nutrien and United Way of Larimer County work together, truly make anything possible. We are thrilled for this expansion of our organizations’ collective commitment to growing our future – this investment is a testament to Nutrien’s commitment to Larimer County and ensures our littlest learners and future workforce are prepared for success in life,” said Joy Sullivan, President and CEO of United Way of Larimer County.

The Loveland Youth Campus concept originated as a partnership between Boys and Girls Clubs of Larimer County, Teaching Tree Early Childhood Learning Center, United Way of Larimer County and Early Childhood Council of Larimer County. Additional nonprofit partners including ChildSafe and Loveland Youth Gardeners, are joining the location to provide onsite services for children and families. The campus can serve 350 youth per day, quadruple Teaching Tree’s current available Loveland child care spots for infants and toddlers, and impact thousands of local families.

United Way of Larimer County is leading the fundraising efforts for the completion of the $2M retrofit of the Loveland Youth Campus building to meet current child care licensing requirements. Dohn Construction, a local leader and strong community supporter, is spearheading the renovations, which began in August of 2023 and are slated to be completed by March 2024.

Nutrien has been a long-time supporter of United Way of Larimer County and its programs. In addition to being a leading Cornerstone Partner, Nutrien is also a dedicated Workplace Giving participant and WomenGive Mission Sponsor. Nutrien’s investment in the Loveland Youth Campus will provide critical support for classrooms for Teaching Tree’s child care services as well as support for the Loveland Youth Gardeners, which has a flagship garden onsite.

“As part of our company’s purpose of Feeding the Future, it’s so important for us to help ensure the children in our communities have access to the resources they need, especially healthy food,” said Katie Mayfield, Senior Director of Human Resources for North American Retail at Nutrien. “The foundation for a child’s success is nutritious food, so we are very proud to support the Loveland Youth Campus to help ensure the children in our community have a safe place to spend time after school, as well as a place to grab a healthy snack.”

All monetary donations to the Loveland Youth Campus qualify for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCCCTC), which can provide a 50% state tax credit in addition to the applicable Federal and State income tax deductions. Customizable naming rights, sponsorship, and donor opportunities are available and can be explored by contacting Christina Cooper, VP of Resource Development and Communications with United Way of Larimer County ([email protected] or 970-988-2176).
