Some nonprofits in our community
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Colorado
    The children served have many risk factors, dropping out of school, or using drugs, alcohol, violence. BBBS has reduced the risk of drug use by 46%, alcohol use by 27% and kids are 33% less likely to hit. With your help we can continue to place the over 30 children on our wait list.
  • Animas Alano Club, Inc.
    We are trying to purchase a building that we are currently leasing for the club. The purchase price is $950k. We have raised approximately $150k toward a $450k down payment. We have been given tentative approval for a $500k mortgage by a local bank. We need to raise $300k in the next 16 months.
  • Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program
    Rise promotes the belief that all people have the right to live free from violence by providing support and advocacy services for victims and education for youth and our community.
  • Justice Ministries of Pagosa, Inc.
    We advocate for social justice with people in need and some who are homeless from different backgrounds of brokenness. Most of them have few support/examples to help them with basic needs and healthy living skills. Your donations will help us bridge these gaps in a safe, non-intimidating environment
