Celebrating its 30th year in 2019, the Awards for Excellence program recognizes outstanding Colorado nonprofit organizations by presenting them with grant dollars for their impressive work supporting the people of Colorado. Since its inception, the program has provided more than $6.3 million in grant support to more than 500 nonprofit organizations throughout Colorado.
In 2019, three nonprofits organizations of excellence were recognized: two from rural communities in Colorado, and one from the Denver Metro Area. In addition, El Pomar recognized two individuals for their outstanding contributions to the nonprofit sector. The rural and Denver Metro recipients were honored at El Pomar’s annual statewide convening meeting. Additional honorees from the Pikes Peak region will be celebrated at a reception held at the Penrose House later this year.
