El Pomar Foundation’s Awards for Excellence program recognizes outstanding Colorado nonprofit organizations and community leaders by presenting them $215,000 in cash awards for their impressive work to support the people of Colorado. Since its inception in 1989, the Awards for Excellence program has provided nearly $5 million in grant support to more than 400 nonprofit organizations throughout Colorado. Six nonprofits are recognized each year for their excellence in the following fields: Arts and Culture, Civic and Community, Education, Environment, Health and Human Services. In addition, El Pomar recognizes individuals for their outstanding contributions to the nonprofit sector. The event is hosted by El Pomar Trustees at an annual retreat that takes place each fall.
