Grants averaging $25,000 to Colorado nonprofits working to strengthen the Pueblo community. An LOI must be submitted by April 16, 2018. Funding is intended to support projects and programs that enhance the environment, support children and families, and provide access to reproductive health.
The Packard Foundation Fund for Pueblo will support a wide range of agencies, projects and programs that enhance the lives of Pueblo’s children and families and the community as a whole. While there is no limit to the number of issues that are considered within the context of community, the work always complements or supports the issues its founders cared most about – the environment, children and family support, and access to reproductive health.
The Foundation prioritizes operational and program support rather than funding capital and infrastructure, while striving to remain responsive to community needs. Three types of grants are offered: program, general support, and capital.
