Regional Council Members: Local Insight Equals Maximum Impact

When it comes to grantmaking and program development in communities throughout Colorado, El Pomar relies on its Regional Council members to make decisions that can truly offer support where it is needed most. Our Regional Council members are community leaders who are actively involved on a daily basis in the different areas where they live. They come from the business, government and nonprofit sectors and include numerous college presidents and elected officials.  Divided into 11 Regional Councils, they provide the kind of insight that allows El Pomar to distribute its resources effectively.
