The application for the Payroll Department’s $7,000 matching grants is now open. The deadline to apply is April 16.
The Payroll Department partners with the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado to manage this grant opportunity for La Plata County nonprofits. Three “Meet Your Match” grants are available for La Plata County organizations that support efforts in youth, environment or human services. The grant requires a 100% match of the funds from new revenue sources, such as new donors, grants, or corporate sponsors. The grant and its required match create a $14,000 infusion for each selected organization.
The application is available under the nonprofit resources tab on the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado’s website at www.swcommunityfoundation.org.
The Payroll Department is especially interested in supporting programs or collaborations that further a nonprofit’s mission and may need a boost while the organization secures long-term funding. This could be a new program or an expansion of services.
