Investing in outstanding nonprofit organizations in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming

Colorado Outstate, Utah, and Wyoming Grants

The Daniels Fund has specific objectives for each of our funding and geographic areas. In Utah, we consider grants in all eight funding areas. While we are open to considering requests in all eight funding areas for Colorado Outstate, Utah, and Wyoming, our grantmaking approach emphasizes the following priorities:

  • Youth programs, especially those that focus on career and technical education, and entrepreneurship
  • Facilities that accommodate and encourage community gatherings (such as senior centers, youth centers, and community sports complexes)
  • Proven programs that deliver prevention education and/or treatment for drug and alcohol addiction
  • Collaborative initiatives/partnerships working to achieve community-wide results
  • Programs that have regional impact, address community challenges at the systemic level, and/or generate strong local support from the community

To achieve our goals and maximize our impact, we work closely with a limited number of highly effective nonprofit organizations with a demonstrated ability to achieve measurable results.

Our streamlined grant application process allows us to be more focused while continuing our commitment to being open and responsive.
