The Uncompahgre Valley has a proud, rich agricultural history and is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts year around. Our beautiful valley is surrounded by the diverse geological and biodiverse landscapes of the Grand Mesa to the north, Elk Mountains and Black Canyon of the 
to the East, Dominguez-Escalante Canyons in the west plateau, and the San Juan and Cimarron Mountains to the south. Our communities are tied together by the Gunnison and Uncompahgre Rivers

With exponential growth comes growing pains for nonprofit services that keep our valley a vibrant, healthy and diverse community. Whether you are a visitor, second homeowner, business or resident, we ask you to generously support the services that benefit us all. 


In 2022 we raised $254,000 dollars

from 2,388 donations for local nonprofits!
