Making a Difference

Since 2017, the Community Foundation has built our Making a Difference speaker series into a much-anticipated opportunity to cultivate conversations and nurture ideas that truly make a difference in our community.

We have welcomed columnists, adventurers, entertainers, and changemakers. We have been moved by their inspirational stories, challenged by their thoughtful analysis, and prompted to deepen our impact in Southwest Colorado. We invite you to join us for our next event in 2022. Stay tuned for details!
