The Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado works hard to maximize every dollar we invest in the community. Our mission is to facilitate the growth and effectiveness of philanthropic contributions and expand the culture of giving to meet the needs of our communities. We envision a generous, vibrant and inclusive Southwest Colorado with opportunities for all to thrive.
Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that invests and manages contributions to our five-county community. Our goal is to build, over time, substantial funds for the community through these contributions and other awards.
During 2020's COVID crisis, the Foundation has infused more than $1 million into our region to support people impacted by the pandemic, including $500,000 from the Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF).
The Community Foundation inspires hope, leadership, and generosity in the community by bringing economic stability, professional development, and collaboration to the nonprofit sector.
As a community facilitator, we work to increase efficiency, sustainability, and success for nonprofits and maximize effective grant making for philanthropists to make Southwest Colorado a better place to live.
Together we can expand the culture of giving to meet the needs of our community. If you would like to learn more and get involved, contact us today. To join our email list so that you can stay in the loop about what’s happening at the Community Foundation, click here.
