Some nonprofits in our community
  • 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.
  • Boys & Girls Club of La Plata County
    In accordance with health dept regulations, the Club re-opened in Jan 2021 and has provided quality programming for the kids we can help the most without disruption. Donations to the Club are tax deductible. Eligible donations may qualify for a Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit.
  • Montezuma School to Farm Project
    The school garden classrooms provide accessible living laboratories and core curriculum lessons. Classes are an integral part of the school day so that learning in the school garden coincides with important science and math concepts.
