In celebration of our 20th anniversary year, a handful of $20,000 grants will be awarded in 2017 to new, creative projects designed to improve the quality of life in western Colorado. We are looking to support what we call “impact projects.” Projects considered for funding need to: (1) meet a clear and documented unmet need, (2) introduce a new, innovative solution, and (3) involve collaboration across multiple partner organizations.

Qualified 501 (c)(3) organizations that are developing a project that meets the specified criteria are invited to submit a Letter of Interest (LOI) by June 30, 2017. These can be submitted by mail to:
