Aspen Skico Foundation accepting grant applications
September 30, 2009
ASPEN – The Environment Foundation, Aspen Skiing Co. employee-run nonprofit charity, is accepting grant applications for projects that improve or protect the Roaring Fork Valley’s environment. The application deadline for the fall cycle is 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 26.
The foundation supports projects that promote environmental education and research, seek to reduce the impacts of climate change, foster responsible stewardship of our natural resources, protect our mountain ecosystems, and preserve and create opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Eligible recipients may be private or nonprofit organizations, government agencies or individuals. The board of directors evaluates all grant applications first on compliance with the eligibility requirements, then on a set selection of criteria. The board suggests that maximum grant requests not exceed $15,000, though the average grant is $8,000.
Applicants can request an electronic grant application, eligibility guidelines or more information from Matthew Hamilton at email@example.com. Completed applications should be e-mailed to Hamilton.
