Mission Statement

The mission of Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center is to provide the tools to connect, support, and inspire community nonprofits.
Our vision is simple and our guiding touch point: Strong Nonprofits. Strong Community.

Organization History

The Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center (EPNRC) was imagined in 2001 by two individuals who realized the needs of nonprofit organizations in the Estes Valley. Over the next few years, these individuals recruited other dedicated individuals with various expertises and experience with the third sector. The EPNRC was incorporated in the State of Colorado and received its 501(c)(3) IRS designation in April 2004. Since the beginning, the board of this all-volunteer organization has acted as catalysts by providing education, information and resources to nonprofit organizations and their boards, staff and volunteers. In 2010, the organization hired its first professional paid staff. In 2013 educational offerings expanded threefold and 2014, three innovative and collaborative programs were added: Mountain Strong for Nonprofits (a short term program in direct response to needs of flood recovery; since has served its purpose and dissolved), The Estes Valley Legacy and The Community Give Back Program. Since 2015 EPNRC has seen tremendous growth in individual donations, a testament to our value in the community. We currently have added part time staff to manage marketing, member, and donor services as we continue to create models and tool kits for best practices for our member nonprofits. In 2017 we continued to be responsive, resilient and resourceful and have embarked on a Sustainability Campaign to ensure programming continues at a high level into the future.


EPNRC provides an invaluable resource for local nonprofits. - Estes Park Education Foundation
The trainings offered to nonprofit staff members are a huge help and make it very easy to access new information and ongoing opportunities. - Boys & Girls Club of Larimer County.
EPNRC has provided an abundance of training opportunities. Because I had never worked with a nonprofit in the past, these opportunities accelerated my understanding of not only how nonprofits work, but also were a tremendous support to me in my role as ED. The Job/Volunteer Fair resulted in us learning about other organizations and provided opportunities to meet volunteers interested in working with EPLP. - Estes Park Learning Place
The Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center sponsors many worthwhile events each month. One timely offering for Crossroads Ministry of Estes Park was the training opportunity, "14 Things Nonprofits Wish They Knew About Charity Auctions." The information gained there - and especially connecting with the training event leader, auctioneer Kevin Ritter - was instrumental in the unprecedented success of Crossroads Ministry's benefit auction this year. Kudos to EPNRC for making this great resource available to area nonprofits.
Crossroads Ministry
As Director of a small nonprofit organization, I find the quality and availability of networking and training opportunities invaluable to my work. The EPNRC provides a wide range of free or low cost training events, pertinent to my work, and otherwise not available in our community. Without the EPNRC, I would need to travel to the Front Range area to access training of similar quality, and would not have the time nor funding to access the variety of opportunities offered right here."
