The Community Foundation’s Making a Difference Speaker Series is designed to inspire conversation, prompt action and bring a new perspective. We look for speakers who propel philanthropy – an idea, event, or action that is done to better humanity. In 2021 we welcomed political analyst David Brooks.
Gather with like-minded changemakers to enrich nonprofits – and yourself.
From a speaker series to Durango’s largest wine tasting, the Community Foundation is proud to partner with community members to ignite action for the greater good. These events and special programs not only help fund our work with nonprofits, but also create awesome memories that inspire us to dream bigger and better together.
DURANGO WINE EXPERIENCE
The Community Foundation has partnered with the Durango Wine Experience! Unfortunately, due to the current public health emergency, the 2021 spring event was been canceled.
We look forward to a time when we can gather in person again. Until then — Cheers to our amazing community!
COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND
The Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) is designated for broad-based community emergencies in Southwest Colorado. The Community Foundation has activated CERF in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donations are now being accepted to deploy funds to community-based organizations directly responding to the needs of our community.
The Community Foundation is honored to have outstanding relationships with dozens of community-minded individuals and organizations that support our work to create a thriving community. We couldn’t be successful without our amazing partners.
