Group Publishing began over 40 years ago in the home of our chairman, Thom Schultz, in Loveland. Since that humble beginning, we now have 250 staff members. We provide books, magazines, curriculum, service experiences, training events and more to a global audience.

Every year, Group gives a portion of its profits back to the community. Since 1997, Group has donated more than a million dollars to non-profit organizations in Northern Colorado through Group’s Community Service Awards.
