Regional Response Fund Fund

About This Fund

Hosted by Telluride Foundation, the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund will provide flexible resources to organizations and individuals working within our communities that are disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak. The Fund is designed to complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak as efficiently as possible. The Telluride Foundation will administer grants to qualified nonprofits, and emergency hardship grants to individuals.

In the near-term, one-time operating grants will fund organizations that have deep roots within priority populations and services, such as human service and health nonprofits facing unprecedented, unexpected situations due to the coronavirus. We anticipate that healthcare facilities, food banks, homeless shelters, as well as programs serving school-aged kids on free and reduced lunch or providing access to the internet for distance learning will need financial help.

About The Host Organization

It started with a shared passion for a charming town nestled in the mountains. Ron Allred discovered Telluride in 1979 when he purchased the Telluride Ski Resort and developed it into a world-class resort. The Telluride Foundation is committed to enriching the quality of life of the residents, visitors and workforce of the Telluride region. The Foundation does this by development and supporting initiatives and making direct investments that maximize benefit to all, nurture self-reliance and create meaningful change.
