The Foundation focuses its grantmaking in the following areas: arts and culture, environmental conservation, education, and social services. High priority is given to capital drives and equipment purchases (except in education, human services, and environment). The Foundation also lists as high priorities: innovative start-up programs that require a moderate amount of grant funding; intergenerational projects involving community service; cooperative projects that involve several agencies or volunteers; ongoing programs that have proven themselves unique and essential; and matching fund drives. The Foundation gives low priority to funding medical research; debt retirement; national fundraising programs; and requests from public schools and governmental agencies due to the lack of good financial data. Organizations in Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, and New Mexico are eligible to apply. The Foundation will not accept proposals via e-mail. Programs must have been in existence for the previous three years before applying. Additional information is available online.
