Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $7,500 and grants of up to $30,000 to Colorado nonprofit organizations and government agencies serving eligible regions for activities that benefit local residents. Applicants requesting a larger amount must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to support general operations, or programming within the focus areas of arts and culture, education, health and human services, environment, and recreation. Eligible organizations serve Routt and Moffat Counties and the Yampa Valley.

The 2022 grant cycle will focus on unrestricted grants. Unrestricted funding provides grantees the flexibility to assess and determine where grant dollars are most needed and allows for innovation, emergent action, and building sustainability. 

Principle-based Criteria:

  • Organizations striving for ‘Transformative Change’ to address the root causes of the problem, not just its symptoms.
  • Organizations having a leadership team and board that reflect the community they are serving.
  • Organizations working collaboratively with a shared vision to improve the Yampa Valley through the arts & culture, environment, health and human services, recreation and/or educational sectors.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant requests should be limited to $7,500 or less. YVCF will consider larger grant requests of up to $30,000 that demonstrate significant impact within the Yampa Valley.

Term of Contract:

Your organization may qualify for a multi-year grant if you comply with the criteria set out on page 2 of the Guidelines, in Supporting Documents, below.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Operational Criteria:
- IRS status: 501(c)3 or fiscally sponsored through a 501(c)3 organization or local government.
- Geography: Serve Routt and/or Moffat county. Grant funding can only be used to support work in these two counties.

To qualify for unrestricted grants, the nonprofit organization must serve Routt and/or Moffat Counties and must meet all other eligibility requirements posted in the 2022 Community Grants Guidelines.

The Foundation will accept programmatic grant applications from organizations and public entities when an operating grant is not appropriate. Examples include organizations with regional or statewide service areas, public entities or programs run by religious organizations if the program meets a critical need in the community and does not require religious participation. The organization must satisfy all other 2022 Community Grants Guidelines.

Grant Restrictions:
- Religious or political purposes
