The story of the Yampa Valley Community Foundation is created daily. It is created by the passion of our community members and the strengths of our nonprofits. Together we continue to create, enjoy, and build a vibrant Yampa Valley.
This past year, IMPACT100, granted $10,5000 divided between Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Community Agriculture Alliance, Routt County Council on Aging, and LiftUp of Routt County.
The decision of who to fund was made by you! As we start another season, take a look of the IMPACT you made last year.
A letter from the Community Agriculture Alliance:
As you start your next IMPACT 100 campaign, Community Agriculture Alliance wants to reiterate our appreciation of your $2000 support for our organization.
Because of your generous donation earlier this year we have been able to achieve the following:
- Relocate the delivery and pick-up location for our on-line CAA Market: It is not an easy task to find affordable, convenient rental space in downtown Steamboat but with your financial help we were able to negotiate a month-to-month lease which is allowing us to temporarily meet our needs while we search for a permanent location.
- Partner with Lift-up of Routt County to utilize their new food pantry for frozen meat storage: One of the issues we deal with in our attempts to provide more local food to our community is the storage capacity for meats and our producers are now able to utilize the new walk-in-freezer at Lift-up.
- Substantial increase in both the producers and consumers using the CAA Market: Our Yampavore program is growing each week and we are helping our producers connect with individuals and restaurants who appreciate healthy, locally raised or produced food. This also provides positive economic impact in our community.
IMPACT 100 made a difference for Community Agriculture Alliance.
Thank you for your vision and continued support of our local non-profits.
