El Pomar Foundation taking grant applications from Aspen area organizations

Staff report

Does your organization have an afterschool or summer enrichment program?

The El Pomar Foundation’s High Country Council, which serves Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake, Pitkin and Summit counties, announced this week it is accepting requests for proposals from organizations that provide or seek to provide quality out-of-school programs.

Applications will be accepted through April 10.

A focus of the council, which is part of El Pomar’s regional partnership program, is helping children realize their full potential by extending the positive benefits of participation in afterschool and summer programs to all students.

Organizations must be a 501(c)3 or government equivalent and provide quality out-of-school programs for students currently without access. Ideally organizations already serve under-resourced, low-income or otherwise at-risk youth.

To request a grant application, email rduke@elpomar.org. Grand applications must be completed and submitted electronically by the April 10 deadline.

El Pomar Foundation is one of the largest and oldest private foundations in Colorado and contributes statewide approximately $22 million annually through grants and community stewardship programs supporting Colorado nonprofits involved in health, human services, education, arts and humanities, and civic and community initiatives. Spencer and Julie Penrose founded El Pomar in 1937.

El Pomar Foundation’s 11 regional councils represent all 64 counties in Colorado and are comprised of local business, public and nonprofit leaders. More information can be found at http://www.elpomar.org.

Bluebird skies, spring-like temperatures and a few inches of snow from Monday night’s storm helped Snowmass skiers and snowboarders cruise into the season Wednesday for opening day.
