The Joseph Henry Edmondson Foundation serves the Pikes Peak Region. While grants have been awarded outside this geographic area under unique circumstances, most funding is confined to supporting those nonprofits in this region.
All organizations applying to the Foundation must be a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization; or be a project or organization under the fiscal agency of a 501(c)3 organization.
The Foundation does not support:
- Organizations that have not secured their legal 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS or are not under the fiscal agency of a nonprofit;
- Special and/or Fundraising Events;
- Debt Reduction;
- Organizations with an evangelical mission.
Note that while the Foundation does support public education, this area is solely funded via proactive initiatives. Therefore, unsolicited proposals will not be considered.
The Foundation will not be responsible for providing continuous and sole operational or programmatic funding.
