Drowning Prevention and Water Safety Education

Our mission at Drennen’s Dreams Foundation is to honor Drennen’s legacy by emphasizing the importance of high safety standards for lifeguards, pool management and aquatics facilities.

Colorado’s largest day of giving, Colorado Gives Day, is taking place on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.

On this day, thousands of people come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. When you donate to Drennen’s Dream Foundation, you’re helping us honor Drennen’s legacy by teaching and training lifeguards and aquatics professionals, equipping and supporting managers and owners to maintain the highest safety standards.

Why do we do what we do? From January – October 2019, 630 children and youth suffered fatal drownings. Many times more suffered a non-fatal drowning. A significant number of the fatal and non-fatal drownings occurred in guarded pools and waterfronts. The presentations we lead for lifeguards, aquatic managers, and facility owners/operates makes a difference in reducing drowning at guarded facilities.
For the last 10 years, if drownings were increasing at the same rate as population growth, the number of drownings would be 16% higher than they are.
Your support helps us increase the number of presentations we lead each year. This year we will reach approximately 450,000 lifeguards, aquatic managers and facility owners nationally.

Our Colorado Gives Day goal is to raise $20,000. You can increase the value of your donation two ways:
• We have received a $3,000 challenge grant, so the first $3,000 in pledges and donations will be matched dollar for dollar.
• Thanks to the $1 Million Incentive Fund from Community First Foundation and FirstBank, your donation goes further on Colorado Gives Day. You can schedule your donation for Colorado Gives Day or donate to us on Colorado Gives Day by clicking this link: https://www.coloradogives.org/index.php?section=organizations&action=newDonation&fwID=37508

Community First Foundation and FirstBank incentive fund increases the value of every dollar donated proportionally. For example, if we receive 10 percent of the total donations, pledged between today and December 10th or made on Colorado Gives Day, we will receive 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. Thanks in advance for your support. You make our mission possible. Drowning is Preventable!

If the sounds of drowning don’t fit our expectations, neither do the children who drown.
