Philanthropy has Power.

It builds and sustains a healthy and vital society.  It connects friends, families, and neighbors.  And, it brings us all together for a shared purpose.  Since 1995,  the Yampa Valley Community Foundation (YVCF) has empowered local nonprofits through education and grants, leveraged community funds through the strength of endowments, and inspired donors to connect with causes that matter.  One person, one family, one business, one contribution can make a difference. More importantly, together we have the power to guarantee the Yampa Valley’s future for generations to come.

Here is how we can work together:


Our expert staff welcomes the opportunity to meet with you individually. We can answer your questions on effective giving approaches and suitable grant-making strategies. In the process of getting to know you, we become familiar with your specific reasons and goals for supporting your community.



From programs in the arts and literacy,  health and human resources and environmental protection, there is an abundance of worthy recipients who benefit from Community Foundation’s funding. Our knowledgeable staff will help you connect to the causes that matter most to you.


In creating a fund with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation, you can shape an easy, effective and powerful way to impact our communities—today and for generations to come. We are proud to be your partner in philanthropy.
