The Manny Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, community organization based in Denver, Colorado. The Manny Foundation is designed to provide scholarship opportunities to local youth and young adults to help them achieve their goals of higher education. We aim to encourage and support these students by preparing them with tools and resources needed to pursue their dreams through participation in community outreach, stewardship, mentorship and educational programs. We are also established as an organization recognized by the Colorado Secretary of State.
The Manny Foundation was founded in memory of Manuel “Manny” Honeycutt. Manny, a graduating senior in the School of Business at Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas, passed away in October of 2010, at the age of 23 from a heart attack. Manny was a dynamic dreamer and respected leader among his peers and in his community. He was a strong advocate for education and aspired to bring hope in all young people that they, too, can live their dreams.
