A vital nonprofit sector is essential to the Yampa Valley. Since 1984, the Yampa Valley Community Foundation has provided high impact services that link individuals to nonprofits and strengthen both the governance and the leadership capacity of our region’s nonprofit sector. The Community Foundation supports local nonprofits in the following ways:

Endowment Incentive Grant Program
Encouraging you to reach your goals.

The Yampa Valley Community Foundation endowment building program will serve to help nonprofits
secure their future and ability to serve their community, today and tomorrow. Our incentive program
is available exclusively to nonprofits that have established an endowment fund with the Yampa Valley
Community Foundation. We have dedicated $100,000 in incentive grants to support our area nonprofit
organizations endowment-building efforts. The Yampa Valley Community Foundation has pledged
to match donations made to these endowments .25 cents per dollar, up to $10,000 per nonprofit.

Workshops and Seminars
YVCF hosts workshops and seminars on various subjects throughout the year to increase nonprofit
management knowledge and success.

The Community Foundation offers the Community Grant cycle for local nonprofits to request funds.
Grant proposals are reviewed by our Grants Committee, comprised of YVCF Board Members and
community volunteers. Grants are awarded for innovative projects and programs that demonstrate
progress towards achieving community goals.
