Funded Projects2021 Funded Project: Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley
Strengthening and Enriching the Gunnison Valley
The Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley (CFGV) strengthens and enriches the community through engaged philanthropy, thoughtful grantmaking, strategic education, and collaborative leadership. Historically, the CFGV has served as a resource for Gunnison Valley nonprofit organizations, providing everything from funds to technical assistance. Recently, the CFGV has focused on hosting “sandbox” conversations for various groups and organizations to collaborate and engage in cooperative work, as well as discussing regional, cross-cutting community issues with local leaders.
Helping to Preserve and Protect the Environment
In honor of Chris’ passion for travel and love of the outdoors, particularly Crested Butte, the Chris Mikesell Foundation provides assistance to organizations dedicated to preserving and protecting the environment’s natural beauty. Because of CFGV’s history of providing funding and technical assistance to environmental organizations, as well as its focus on hosting “sandbox” conversations that include environmental organizations in the Gunnison Valley, the Chris Mikesell Foundation provided a $3,500 grant to the organization in 2021.
