Conservation. Outdoor Recreation. Environment.
Our Community Foundation is making a committed effort to expand funding and better support the conservation, restoration, and enhancement of natural ecosystems important to the quality of life and economy of our communities in western Colorado.
With the enthusiasm and financial support of 32 founding donors, the CORE Giving Circle, who care about the environment, our Community Foundation is building an endowment fund to increase funding and distribute grants in support of conservation, outdoor recreation, and environment (CORE) projects.
The CORE Fund supports a wide span of projects as there are many issues to work on related to protecting and enhancing our environment and outdoor lifestyle. Like-minded donors who care about these issues and want to make grant investments are encouraged to join us! CORE Fund donors participate in the annual process to review projects and determine grants, go on project site visits, and attend special education events. For more information, contact
Our CORE Giving Circle gathered in-person for the first time in two years to award more than $50,000 to 11 deserving nonprofits across our region. Donors reviewed 18 proposals requesting over $80,000. Click here to see  the projects selected by members of the Giving Circle.
