Women’s Giving Circle Request for Assistance – Now accepting applications on a rolling basis year-round

The Women’s Giving Circle of the Yampa Valley Community Foundation is seeking proposals on a rolling basis for their year-round granting. This group of donors wishes to have an immediate impact toward improving the situation of women, children or the elderly in the Yampa Valley. They are requesting proposals from organizations, schools and churches who may know of community members who could use a little boost from anonymous “angels” among us. If, in your work, you are familiar with a family or individual (especially children) who needs some help, we invite you to submit a proposal.

YVCF encourages all agencies to call YVCF to discuss the individual circumstances of the family or individual needs before submitting a proposal: Emily Beyer 970-879-8632.
