ACF’s Cradle to Career strengthens the ecosystem for youth and families throughout the region. Improving youth outcomes – from birth through career readiness – will substantially benefit our region’s quality of life and economy.
Aspen Community Foundation’s (ACF) service area spans an 80-mile corridor along the Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers. Home to many working-class families struggling financially, ACF works to increase youth success across our region through community partnerships and philanthropy.
Through its broad perspective of the region, and depth and breadth of knowledge of community trends, issues, and needs, ACF works with donors to direct funding where it is needed most. We appreciate and value these donors.
ACF's grantmaking prioritizes efforts that address critical needs and increases access for the most vulnerable throughout the region, expanding opportunities for all to live healthy, independent lives. Through the generosity of contributors, ACF supports nonprofit organizations that serve children and families and provide essential human services, as well as those caring for the environment and our natural resources.

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.
