More than 10 years ago, Eric Moleski, a Twin Cities financial planner, created GEN Children’s Charity. The name of organization was derived from the first letter of the names of his three children. Eric recognized that many parents are not fortunate enough to offer their children the resources necessary to provide educational experiences that will put them on track for success in life. Eric assembled an event committee and together they organized a golf tournament to raise dollars to help nonprofits that serve low income youth.
Today, thousands of students have benefited from the GEN Children’s Charity’s support of organizations like Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Majestic Hills Ranch, Minneapolis Children’s Hospital, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Bolder Options, College Possible, the Page Education Foundation and BestPrep.
Last summer, BestPrep became the 8th charity selected as the recipient of proceeds from the annual GEN golf tournament. More than $86,000 was raised which will support the attendance of low income students at Minnesota Business Venture, BestPrep’s week-long summer business, career, and financial literacy camp. MBV alum Angad Jaspal, a senior at East Ridge High School, spoke during the tournament’s evening program about the impact that MBV has had on his life and his personal aspirations.
BestPrep has established a Minnesota Business Venture Scholarship Fund that will be utilized beginning with the 2017 program to support the cost of low-income students participating. BestPrep was honored to be selected as the beneficiary of this event and recognizes GEN Children’s Charity for their exemplary commitment to helping underprivileged students.
