Some nonprofits in our community
  • The Powerhouse
    Science is an activity and a way of thinking, not simply a body of knowledge. At The Powerhouse, we invite learners of all ages to discover the world through hands on exploration and creation. We engage our community through gallery exhibits, robust school programming, and our member-run MakerLab.
  • Durango Area Youth Hockey Association
    We have programs from age 4 to age 18. We strive to make this sport as affordable as possible so every child has an opportunity to try hockey for themselves and hopefully find a lifetime passion.
  • The Pinon Project
    It is our hope and desire that, through your giving, you will partner with The Piñon Project to build a solid foundation of general unrestricted funding that allows us to continue to provide vital family and youth services to our communities in Montezuma and Dolores Counties.
  • Women's Resource Center in Durango
    The Women's Resource Center creates personal, social and professional growth opportunities for all women in La Plata County. We are an open door center that seeks to enhance lives through resources and programs that improve the health and overall economic vitality of our region.
