Nonprofit Endowment Challenge

The Nonprofit Endowment Challenge program encourages Weld County non-profit organizations to secure their future by establishing or adding to an existing endowment fund with the Community Foundation. As part of the program, the Foundation will provide a match of $10,000 for each selected organization. 

The minimum amount to open an endowment fund at the Community Foundation is $20,000 which can include the Foundation match or the Foundation match can be an additional $10,000 for any amount above $10,000 that the agency invests. All endowment funds generated through the Nonprofit Endowment Challenge will be managed by us and placed into a permanent, named fund for the organization.

The Challenge is open to: 

  • Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Weld County. Preference will be given to those which have been in existence for a minimum of three years. 
  • Preference will be also given to organizations who wish to establish their first organizational endowment, but the match is also open to those who have an existing endowment under the Community Foundation management and who wish to further build their fund.
