Partnering with Nonprofits

In 2019, the Western Colorado Community Foundation distributed more than $4.4 million in grants and scholarships from its charitable funds.

Committed to Nonprofits


Grantmaking is one of the Western Colorado Community Foundation’s community-building strategies. WCCF also administers scholarships, provides training and support to nonprofits through its NSTAR program and manages Agency Endowments for organizations.

The work of local nonprofit organizations impacts the quality of life for everyone in western Colorado. Recognizing the essential role they play in the economy and health of our communities, the Western Colorado Community Foundation is committed to sharing knowledge about the nonprofit sector with our larger community and strengthening our nonprofit organizations through grants and training.
