Some nonprofits in our community
  • For Pets' Sake Humane Society
    Our volunteers have been helping pets and the people who care about them for 35 years! We help pet owners with spay/neuter costs, emergency vet bills, and pet food. We help unwanted dogs and cats get ready for adoption. Our outdoor, stray and abandoned cat project helps these often unwanted cats.
  • Mountain Studies Institute
    MSI is a dynamic initiative to care for the San Juan Mountains. Through applied research, education, and stewardship we go beyond scientific inquiry to the meaningful application of information making a difference for the quality of life for mountain communities and the environment in SW CO.
  • Community Connections, Inc.
    Support children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play and be integrated contributing members of their SW Colorado communities. Your donation will help our clients reach their life goals and have the same opportunities as other community members.
  • Crow Canyon Archaeological Center
    When you choose to give to Crow Canyon, you open the door for those in need. Students can participate in programs, researchers can begin new projects, teachers can better educate today's youth, archaeologists can make new discoveries & more.
