Aims Community College has received $100,000 from the Boettcher Foundation. The gift will be directed to the Aims Building for Tomorrow Today campaign, which is the Aims Foundation’s fundraising campaign dedicated to upgrading equipment and facilities for the new Allied Health and Sciences Building. “The Boettcher Foundation endorses innovative programs that address current healthcare and educational needs throughout Colorado,” said Julie Buderus, director of the Aims Foundation. “Their generous gift will directly benefit students who take courses in the new Allied Health and Science Building.” The 68,000-square-foot Allied Health and Sciences Building serves students taking nursing, surgical technology, radiological technology, emergency medical services, medical assisting, chemistry, biology, physics, and anatomy and physiology classes. It is designed to simulate a real hospital setting with state-of-the-art technology in laboratories, classrooms, offices and common areas. Cutting-edge laboratories simulate real-life working environments, such as an emergency room, X-ray labs and the back of an ambulance. The labs are also equipped with robotic patient simulators that can be programmed to react like real patients in real emergency situations. “Aims is honored to be included as a partner with the Boettcher Foundation,” Buderus said. “This generous donation will help Aims train our community’s future healthcare providers to the very best of their abilities, with the very latest equipment and facilities.” Based in Denver, the Boettcher Foundation is a privately endowed grant-making organization dedicated to assisting, encouraging, and promoting the residents of Colorado. The founding Trustees of the Boettcher Foundation decided to direct grants of a significant size toward large and well-conceived projects.
