GROWTH: Since 2017, MCF's assets have grown by 75% allowing us to give $2.8 million in grants into the community. 

GIVING: MCF has funded more than 100 nonprofits that help people


  • Through more than $700,500 in scholarships annually, we support students to pursue education for productive careers that enrich us all. 
  • Through annual Impact Grants and other granting programs, MCF supports many local nonprofits with operating and project money. 
  • We partner with local participating nonprofits as a regional sponsor to market for their success for the annual Colorado Gives Day campaign.
  • MCF has assisted with many beneficial community development projects such as: Cerise Park and Rotary Amphitheater, CASA's supportive housing project for Montrose CO, preserving the Shavano Valley petroglyphs, installation of downtown sculptures, Montrose High School Stadium renovation and new Score Board, to name a few. 
  • When you support MCF, you support many of your favorite charities that represent 
     children's services, animals, arts & literature, basic needs, community development, environmental, education, health & wellness, and recreation. 
  • MCF guides opportunities for community members to safely donate to the causes they love, or create a lasting legacy through sound professional investments.
    MCF is your trusted connection to support LOCAL causes that benefit the 
    community you live, work and recreate in.

MCF is governed by an active volunteer board of directors and has a small, but professional, staff. Only a small part of our operating expenses are paid from minimal fund fees. The rest of our costs to continue our good work in the community are covered by gifts designated by donors to cover foundation operating and program expenses.  97% of donations go to support community needs.  

We are powered by your generosity! 


The Montrose Community Foundation inspires and empowers giving, leadership, and service to improve the quality of life for all in our community. We envision…A healthy and vibrant community that is created, sustained and supported by its members and powered by generosity.
