Bonfils-Stanton Foundation resources are invested to strengthen the effectiveness, sustainability, and impact of Colorado nonprofit organizations through three grant-making strategies:
A priority of the Foundation is to invest in the internal capacity of nonprofit organizations committed to making systemic changes to improve their effectiveness. Capacity-building grants help these organizations achieve targeted outcomes in such areas as governance, executive leadership, financial management, fund development, strategic planning, staff development and program evaluation. Recipients of capacity-building grants are generally current grant recipients or organizations with which the Foundation has an established relationship.
Operating grants are usually directed for one-time needs related to specific programs, projects or initiatives. Foundation grants are not generally made for unrestricted operating support.
Grants for capital projects are generally reserved for organizations with which the Foundation has an established relationship. Grants for major capital campaigns are considered after 75% of the campaign goal has been met.
