Ballantine Family Fund
The Ballantine Family Fund is a general purpose fund, which means the Trustees approve grants across a broad spectrum, including arts and culture, environment, animal protection, education, human services, and youth. Nonprofit organizations submit an online application to the Ballantine Family Fund. The Trustees evaluate the requests to determine their ability to support the proposal based on the mission and purpose.
In 2016, the Ballantine Family Fund awarded $262,439 to 117 nonprofits in Southwest Colorado, which includes Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan Counties. The average grant size was $2,251.
The Community Foundation supports the Ballantine Family Fund by bringing the nonprofit knowledge and financial expertise, while the Ballantine trustees maintain their independence with grant making decisions and funding priorities.
