Mix, Mingle, and Make Meaningful Connections

The Community Foundation serving SW Colorado is excited to once again offer a nonprofit grant component to our largest fundraiser, the Durango Wine Experience. The grant application opens January 15, and the deadline to apply is February 9, 2024.

We will select 10 nonprofits to receive a $2,500 grant for volunteering at the DWE Walkabout from 3:30 to 7:30 PM on Friday, April 26 and at the DWE Grand Tasting from 2:30 to 6:30 PM on Saturday, April 27. This is the perfect opportunity to mix and mingle with key community members and share about your mission.

Grantees are required to provide four volunteers for four hours each day. Volunteers may be anyone that represents the organization and is able to perform the duties outlined by the Community Foundation. Bonus points if they know how to work a crowd! Volunteers will wear a DWE apron and may represent their organization in some creative way – t-shirts, hats, name tags, etc.

Organizations across multiple nonprofit sectors and geographic locations will be selected. To be eligible, organizations must be a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization. If you received this grant in 2023, you are not eligible to apply in 2024.

We look forward to another year of sipping wine, making friends, and helping nonprofits.
