About Us

Why is this non-profit so important to you? What is your WHY for supporting them?
What makes A Precious Child such an important organization is that they help children specifically here in Colorado. Their work is even more targeted in our neighboring towns and cities, allowing you to see that the organization really does a lot of good work for the community. Over the years I have worked with A Precious Child for many fundraising events. So, starting right here in our own backyard and focusing on children in need is important to us at Jaguar Land Rover Flatirons.

What is one thing you wish the Denver business community knew about this non-profit?
I wish more people in the Denver business community knew how efficient and hard working the organization is. A Precious Child involves strong community leaders who are committed to making a difference and doing it in a way where almost all of the funds go to the actual bottom line in helping kids and families thrive.

How long have you supported this non-profit and what positive changes have you seen since you starting working with them?
Jaguar Land Rover Flatirons been supporting A Precious Child since they were founded in 2008 by Carina Martin in her garage. Over the past ten years, we’ve been a drive partner to collect school supplies and toys, hosted board meetings in our space when A Precious Child was getting started and also have sponsored events. It has been amazing to see the growth of A Precious Child in this short time. Last year alone, they helped more than 44,000 kids in need. The positive impact A Precious Child is making for children and families right here in our community is inspiring.
