Aspen Skiing Co. Environment Foundation accepting grant applications
September 16, 2014
The Environment Foundation, Aspen Skiing Co.'s employee-run nonprofit charity, is accepting grant applications for projects that aim to improve or protect the Roaring Fork Valley's environment. The application deadline for the fall cycle is 4:30 p.m. Nov. 1.
The foundation supports projects that promote environmental education and research, seek to reduce the impacts of climate change, foster responsible stewardship of natural resources, protect mountain ecosystems and preserve and create opportunities for outdoor recreation.
The Environment Foundation is a partnership among Skico's employees, the Aspen Community Foundation, Aspen Skiing Co. Family Fund and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Employee contributions are substantially matched by each of these three entities. A board of directors composed of Skico employees governs the foundation and decides which projects to fund. More than 1,800 employees contribute to the foundation annually.
Applicants can request an electronic grant application, eligibility guidelines or more information from Matthew Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed applications should be emailed to Hamilton.
