Hurricane Recovery Support

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused significant and catastrophic damage in Texas, Louisiana, Florida and the Caribbean and the human and economic tolls continue to rise.

Aspen Community Foundation has activated its Community to Community Fund to accept donations for long-term recovery needs that will emerge in the months to come. Working with foundations and nonprofits who know the affected communities well, we will direct the funds where they are most needed.

Aspen Community Foundation is monitoring the philanthropic response to these natural disasters. We’ve compiled information on how you can support the various recovery efforts: Texas and Louisiana; Florida; Caribbean

Our Mission

Aspen Community Foundation builds philanthropy and supports nonprofit organizations by connecting donors to community needs, building permanent charitable funds and bringing people together to solve community problems.

Through our community grantmaking to local nonprofits and as the backbone for the Aspen to Parachute Cradle to Career Initiative, ACF continues to expand opportunities for all to live healthy, independent lives. Because of people coming together, discovering new connections, and forming new collaborations, we are making real and lasting change for children and families.

NEW: Family Child Care Start Up Grant

These mini-grants provide financial support to meet licensing requirements for home childcare providers.  Priority will be given to programs seeking to expand access to licensed infant and toddler care.
