El Pomar Foundation’s Awards for Excellence program recognizes outstanding Colorado nonprofit organizations and community leaders by presenting them with cash awards for their impressive work to support the people of Colorado. Since its inception in 1989, the Awards for Excellence program has provided more than $5.8 million in grant support to more than 700 nonprofit organizations throughout Colorado. Starting in 2015, the program will recognize four nonprofits: two from rural Colorado and two from the Pikes Peak Region. In addition, El Pomar recognizes individuals for their outstanding contributions to the nonprofit sector. The rural and individual awards will be celebrated at an annual retreat that takes place each fall, while the Pikes Peak winners will be celebrated at a reception held at the Penrose House in the winter.
