Since 1975, the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado has proudly served the region by promoting local philanthropy. The foundation helps people achieve philanthropic dreams by strategically connecting them with the causes they care about most. And through its annual grant and program distributions, the foundation plays a key role in enhancing the extraordinary quality of life the Northern Colorado region offers its residents.
In partnership with generous donors and dedicated volunteers, the Foundation is working to ensure a bright future for Larimer County. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees, Regional Development Council, and numerous committees have united the four primary communities it serves (Fort Collins, Loveland, Estes Park and Berthoud) with a common purpose. In addition, the Community Foundation is a respected convener and facilitator for important community issues.
