Some nonprofits in our community
  • Dolores River Boating Advocates
    We envision the river and surrounding landscape with permanent protection as part of BLM's National Conservation Lands, supporting a reliable whitewater boating season, and providing habitat for the native species in a way that balances the needs of all stakeholders.
  • Durango Botanic Gardens
    Supporting our botanical gardens means supporting the only public garden in southwest Colorado that is free, open to all, and maintained entirely by volunteers. We were an oasis for many during the pandemic and continue to guide visitors to best gardening practices and water-saving techniques.
  • Veterans for Veterans of Archuleta County
    Veterans for Veterans of Archuleta County seeks tax-deductible contributions is support of the men and women who have served their country. It strives to provide financial assistance to veterans in need, to be their advocate and provide resources of education, information and experience.
  • Chimney Rock Interpretive Association
