The Colorado Grand

Grant Guidelines & Procedures

Invitation-Only Policy

The Colorado Grand has an invitation-only application process and does not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or proposals. To seek out grantees, the Board of Directors will actively engage with a wide range of organizations, community groups, and other foundations that meet the Colorado Grand donation guidelines. Potential recipients will receive an invitation to apply by August 15. 

Additional Information

The Charity Committee will give priority to applications from towns that we travel through each year. No grant shall be awarded which exceeds 25% of the total revenues of the organization. The committee will also give priority to smaller organizations. The committee appreciates, but does not require, any type of recognition for specific grant awards. The committee will give priority to grants whose mission directly affects people, and will typically not fund schools. In addition, the committee will not fund a mission motivated by politics or religion.

If approved, here is the process:

1) Send us a copy of your 501c3 status letter.

2) Include a copy of your most recent Form 990 financial return

3) Prepare a 1-2 page summary of your mission, the amount of funds you are requesting, who you serve, and any recognition you may include The Colorado Grand. Each year, funds are announced and provided the third week of December.


Additional information:

New and previous applicants should submit requests between $5,000 and $15,000. The committee may consider granting more than a specific request when funds allow. The committee will give priority to applications from towns that we travel through each year. Subsequent to that would be rural towns, then statewide applications. No grant shall be awarded which exceeds 25% of the total revenues of the organization.
The committee will give priority to organizations that are small, less than $1 million in total revenue. Subsequent to that would be $1 to $5 million, then over $5 million. The committee will give priority to grants that have arranged “matching gifts”, but the committee will not monitor or require this. “Matching gifts” may be in the form of labor, intangible items, cash, or food.
