Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations, governmental units, faith-based organizations, school districts, and IHEs to benefit local residents in eligible locations. First-time applicants and faith-based applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended for applicants serving the residents of Gunnison County.

Nonprofits may apply for General Operating Support for their Gunnison County operations only. General Operating support can be spent as needed on any of the organization’s programs and administration. The budget they provide will be for their Gunnison County activities.

Faith-based groups, public entities, and collaborations may only apply for Project support. Public entities may only seek funding for budget-enhancing activities. Public entities/programs may apply for funds to undertake or expand projects that serve the public at large; in the case of Gunnison-Watershed School District or Western Colorado University programs, events must be available to the broader community. 

Collaborative groups may apply for Project support to address a significant need that members cannot do on their own. This could include research into constituent needs, a facilitated collective impact planning process, or a program. Group members may still apply for General Operating or other Project support for their own needs.

CFGV currently awards grants in the following eight areas: arts and culture, community development, environment, education, health and human services, athletics and recreation, domestic animal welfare, and historical tradition and preservation.
