The Hambrick Fund

Mission: Support nonprofit organizations that prevent cruelty to animals, provide direct care and medical assistance, offer educational programs for the proper care of and attention to animals within the state of Colorado.


The Freda Hambrick Fund of El Pomar Foundation seeks to continue the charitable intent of Ms. Freda Hambrick who dedicated much time and energy to support animal welfare organizations and issues throughout Colorado. The Fund makes grants to organizations for the prevention of cruelty to animals, direct care of animals—including medical needs—educational programs for the proper care of and attention to animals, and assistance in these regards. No dollars received from the Fund may be used for euthanasia. The Fund has a separate proposal process and timeline from the El Pomar competitive grant process; grant applications are typically reviewed twice annually in the spring and fall.


Nonprofits with 501 (c)(3) tax status that support animal welfare issues in the state of Colorado are eligible to apply for funding. Applications are accepted year-round, but are generally reviewed twice annually. In 2014, applications will be reviewed in the Spring and Fall.
