Grants up to $40,000 to Colorado nonprofits and local agencies in eligible locations for programs that address community issues. Funding is intended for projects and programs in the following focus areas: early childhood development, athletics, human services, arts and culture, education, health, and environment and animals. Programs must serve people living or working in the Telluride region, including San Miguel, Ouray, West Montrose Counties, and Rico.
Grants may be submitted annually for general operating, existing and new programs and projects, conferences and seminars, consulting services, matching funds, technical assistance, and start-up funds. One request from multiple organizations to support a collaborative project is also accepted.
Financial Aid Applicants: Organizations seeking funding for financial aid/scholarships for their programming must include their participant application form, financial aid form and financial aid criteria (including sliding scale if applicable). The Grants Committee will only fund grants for financial aid/scholarships that are limited to recipients who are low-income, qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch, or demonstrate other strong evidence of need.
Child Care Providers: Funding is awarded to providers using Colorado Shines and Teaching Strategies Gold.
Multi-Year Requests: Although most grants are made for one-year time periods, the Grants Committee will consider multi-year requests. The number of organizations awarded a multi-year grant, and the amount awarded is at the sole discretion of the Grants Committee.
Capital Requests: Capital costs are defined as those expenditures associated with the construction of any building or edifice, including costs related to preliminary studies, overhead, planning and design costs, architectural fees, engineering fees and any other so called “soft cost” including development, fundraising and other initial costs of a capital campaign. Capital requests can also cover the cost of large depreciable equipment. Once a nonprofit is awarded a capital grant, they are not eligible to apply for additional capital funding for four years.
Technical Assistance Grants: Applicants may also apply for technical assistance support which can be used to improve operational efficiencies. You may request technical assistance support as part of your grant application. There is no additional application required. The Grants Committee may also offer an applicant a technical assistance grant rather than – or in addition to, a cash grant award.
