Awards for Excellence
Colorado nonprofit organizations and community leaders are recognized annually for their impressive work to support the people of Colorado.
This innovative outreach program engages more than 70 local community leaders from across Colorado who serve on El Pomar's 11 regional councils. Council members offer insight into the important issues in their own communities to inform El Pomar's grant making across the state. Each regional council recommends up to $200,000 in grants annually and serves as a sounding board for the Foundation's activities across the state.
Forum for Civic Advancement
Forum seeks to contribute to the civic health of the Pikes Peak region. Throughout the year we hold lectures, panels, and seminars in which public-minded citizens can meet political and civic leaders, and engage with cutting-edge political ideas from around the country.
