Strengthening the bonds that make our communities thrive through engaged philanthropy.
The Community Foundation focuses its giving in Weld County, Colorado on grants to nonprofit organizations and scholarships to students pursuing a post secondary education or specific training. At this point, our programs are the combined programs of funds. Our largest funds deal with youth ($8 million) and scholarships ($2 million).
The Community Foundation also acts as a fiscal sponsor for a project or group that does not have its own tax-exempt status. Funds of this type allow community-minded individuals or organizations who have developed community-focused projects to meet charitable needs in the community and the ability to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under the Community Foundation's tax-exempt status. The types of projects eligible to participate in the Community Foundation's Special Project/Pass-Through Fund Program are those which probably would qualify for tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
