COLORADO SPRINGS — El Pomar Trustees approved a $25,000 grant to a government entity in the San Luis Valley region at the Foundation’s December Trustees meeting.
Through the Foundation’s competitive grant making process, the City of Alamosa received $25,000 for the Montana Azul Park project.
Founded by Spencer and Julie Penrose in 1937, El Pomar Foundation has an established legacy of general purpose grant making. The competitive process remains the Foundation’s primary vehicle for organizations to receive funding. Additionally, over the last 80 years, El Pomar has either developed or been entrusted with the stewardship of a number of other funds. Competitive applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
El Pomar Foundation is one of the largest and oldest private foundations in Colorado. El Pomar contributes approximately $22 million annually through grants and Community Stewardship programs to support Colorado nonprofit organizations involved in health, human services, education, arts and humanities, and civic and community initiatives.
