Some nonprofits in our community
  • The Juniper School
    Imagine a school where curiosity guides curriculum; a school that nurtures not only academic excellence but also social-emotional intellect; a school committed to building an authentic, diverse, and active learning environment for the children of our community. We are that school. We are Juniper.
  • Compañeros: Four Corners Immigrant Resource Center
    Help the immigrant community of the Four Corners region by supporting Compañeros, the only organization in the region dedicated to addressing the specialized needs of immigrants.
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Colorado
    COVID has placed a challenge, with new opportunities, for our organization to serve local y. The annual cost is over $1600 per "Little" in order to insure a safe environment where our youth can thrive. Please consider a gift that supports our organization to continue matching quality relationships.
  • 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.
