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 2018, four nonprofits organizations of excellence were recognized: two from rural communities in Colorado, one from the Denver Metro Area, and one from the Pikes Peak Region. In addition, El Pomar recognized four 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 and the Pikes Peak recipients were celebrated at a reception held at the Penrose House.
