Some nonprofits in our community
  • For Pets' Sake Humane Society
    We help people and their pets with spay/neuter costs, emergency vet bills, and pet food. We help unwanted dogs and cats get ready for adoption. We have a great outdoor, stray and abandoned cat project. Our volunteers have served the pets and people of Southwest Colorado for 34 years.
  • 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.
  • La Plata Open Space Conservancy
    Donations made to LPOSC enable us to carry out our mission to permanently conserve lands with significant agricultural, wildlife habitat, open space, recreational or historical and archaeological value, and those lands' water resources, that are quintessential to your Southwest Colorado way of life
  • Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies
    CSAS is a highly efficient non-profit looking to sustain our very important programs, monitoring dust-on-snow throughout Colorado, and research at high elevations. Our mountain systems are undergoing change at a fundamental level, and CSAS is there to document and understand these changes.
