Merle Chambers Fund in Denver, Colorado is a non-profit focused on ensuring a brighter future for those who are most impacted by economic, social and political injustice.
At the helm is Merle Chambers – whose past inspires: a 1960s student protester in Berkeley, an attorney, CEO of an oil and gas exploration company. She was the third woman to reach both the North and South poles. Her honors are many, including induction into the Colorado Business Hall of Fame.
For the past two decades, her foundation has been providing grants to organizations who work toward Justice, Equality, and Opportunity; Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency; and Early Care and Education.
ruby slipper has been honored to partner with the Fund since 2003, and proudly created their first award-winning website in 2004. In November, 2017, we unveiled a new website, which gladly promises all of today’s technological advances, plus beautifully showcases the work the organization endorses. The site is a collaborative effort: Executive Director Letty Bass and Program Associate Katy Arnold brilliantly honed the overall direction and message; Programmer Wes Straham, Genesis WordPress developer and founder of Appfinite, customized the Aspire Pro theme. And the outcome is a treasure to be enjoyed by all.
