President and CEO, Gallagher Industries
Is philanthropy a Gallagher family tradition?
Definitely. Through our foundation, the whole family works together to support the Denver community we've made our home.
What are some of your favorite causes?
One key focus is helping promising, underprivileged kids achieve their dreams through education.
How do you know you're making a difference?
When I'm involved directly in schools. For example, I've been on the board of Parent Pathways which runs Florence Crittenton School for teen moms. It's amazing to see those young women changing their lives for the better.
Favorite partner in philanthropy?
The Denver Foundation, hands down. By helping manage the Gallagher Family Foundation, they let us focus on the giving.
