The Foundation accepts, but does not require, the Colorado Common Grant Application. All requests must be in writing and contain the following information:
The foundation discourages lengthy proposals with multiple attachments. If additional information is required, you will be contacted.
The proposal deadline is December 31st, and
Proposals should be addressed to:
Proposal Review Process
Upon receipt, proposals are circulated to the trustees for their review and comment. Include all pertinent materials with the original request. Proposals are circulated to trustees who are off-premises and supplements may not get attached in time for consideration.
Visits to organizations are made at the request of one or more of the trustees. A Foundation consultant will usually make the site visit. Meetings and/or presentations to the trustees are made only at their request and only after receipt of a proposal.
Distributions are made once a year on March 31st. Organizations will be notified in writing whether or not a request was approved. Organizations that meet the Foundation's criteria for funding are eligible to reapply each year.
PLEASE NOTE: The trustees
do not critique proposals for public comment. The most frequent causes
of denial are lack of funds, geographic limitations or the request did
not clearly fit within the Foundation's guidelines.
The Foundation does not publish an annual report.
