• Give Where You Live

    Anna Rickenbach Properties is proud to support local charities in Mesa County. A percentage of our 2018 revenue will be donated to specific charitable organizations that really make an impact in our community. Our goal is to give back to our local Grand Junction neighborhoods, and we are so thankful for our amazing clients and the incredible opportunity to make Mesa County a better place to live, work, and play! We believe in the abundance of giving back. It's about community effort and we hope that it will encourage others to give back as well!

    Below are our 2018 charities – we’re excited to be supporting these causes that are near and dear to our hearts!

  • Graceland Animal Rescue

    Rescue, Rehabilitate & Rehome Animals in Need

    Graceland Animal Rescue is a Foster-based Rescue that believes that by working together we can help animals that are at risk, homeless or displaced. We run solely on donations and fundraising and rely on our community of Volunteers & Fosters to help make this happen. At Graceland, we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need from all over the United States. We rescue from High Kill Shelters and we work with those in the community that can no longer care for their pets. We help all breeds, all ages and try to help dogs with special/medical needs. Special needs might mean they are blind, deaf, diagnosed with severe health issues, missing limbs, etc. We have taken in dogs that would otherwise be destroyed and have been able to find them wonderful, loving homes. We work hard to give these deserving animals a second chance at a happy, healthy life!

    CASA of Mesa County

    Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children of Mesa County

    CASA is dedicated to the best interests of abused and neglected children in the court systems. We recruit and train volunteer Advocates to be the voices for these children. Empowered by the courts, Advocates offer judges critical information to ensure that the needs of these children are being met, and that their rights are being protected. For many abused children, the CASA Advocate is the only constant adult presence in their lives. CASA of Mesa County is part of a nationwide network of community-based CASA programs.

    HomewardBound of the Grand Valley

    Provide a Safe and Healthy Step for Homeless Adults and Families

    HomewardBound of the Grand Valley serves short-term needs and creates opportunities by utilizing the strengths of our community partners here in the Grand Valley Region of Colorado's Western Slope. Homelessness is not who people are, but a challenging societal issue that HomewardBound of the Grand Valley and other agencies are working diligently to end. Every person regardless of his or her situation deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Everyone has an individualized optimal level of capacity – HomewardBound of the Grand Valley ensures that our consumers have what is needed to build their capacity to whatever their optimal capacity level is; no one person is the same and therefore goals are individualized and not generalized. The value of a person at HomewardBound of the Grand Valley is not measured by his or her situation at any given time – but by the very fact that they are human beings.

    Grand Rivers Humane

    A Non-Sheltered Animal Rescue Organization

    Grand Rivers Humane's mission is to reduce the number of homeless and suffering pets through humane education, adoptions and foster care. We work with community resources including local veterinarians and Mesa County Animal services towards achieving our mission. Grand Rivers Humane also partners with Mesa County School District 51 for their program KIND NEWS. This program encompasses writing activities and contests, coordinated with a host of community professionals willing to speak on the tough issues. Classrooms within the district are receiving KIND NEWS and is an age and grade specific publication from the National Humane Education Project, sponsored by Grand Rivers Humane. We always have kitties up for adoption at PetSmart, Petco, and our store! Our dogs are housed at Mesa County Animal Services during the week and an adoption event is held on Saturdays at either Petsmart or PetCo.
