Honor and Legacy
The Puksta Foundation affords amazing students the chance to attend college
The Pukstas entrusted John Mulstay with their legacy. They asked him to establish a nonprofit fund that would give some of the best kids in Colorado (ones who didn’t have the means) the chance to go to college. When Eva and Harry passed away in 1999, John Mulstay formed The Puksta Foundation, which offers scholarship and social change opportunities to exceptional Colorado college students with demonstrated need. The organization recruited scholars at Colorado State University, University of Colorado Boulder, and University of Denver. The foundation now has over 171 alumni and current scholars who have received over 2 million dollars in scholarship funding since 2001. Puksta Scholars contribute more than 6,470 hours to their community social change projects each year, and partner with more than 86 nonprofits and community organizations though Colorado.
