Some nonprofits in our community
  • 3rd Ave. Arts
    3rd Ave. Arts brings together classical musicians, music teachers, music students, and music lovers under the same roof to perform, study and appreciate the best in chamber music. Hallmarks are our dense, rich concert schedule, collaboration with the area's finest musicians, and hospitality.
  • Southwest Center for Independence
    Give the gift of independence! One in five Americans becomes disabled or experiences a chronic condition that interferes with our ability to live the lives we want. Make a real impact on the lives of people with disabilities who want to be more independent and more included in their communities.
  • 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.
  • Sonlight Adventures, Inc
    Camp is a place to be who God created you to be, discovering a greater sense of self through community. We are intentional in work and play. Camp friendships are unique, campers return summer after summer. Our values: whole child development, free play in the natural world and exploring our faith.
