For 75 years, the Boettcher Foundation has been making capital grants to Colorado’s most forward-thinking nonprofits. With more than $300 million in grants given since 1937, the impact of the Foundation has been and continues to be significant.
Announcing 2013 Capital Grant Guidelines
We’re excited to let you know about some changes to our grantmaking categories for 2013. As always, we seek to make grants to support capital campaigns for the purchase, construction or major renovation of a building that is owned and used by a Colorado nonprofit organization.
For 2013, we are focusing on three key 501(c)(3) nonprofit target categories, with the emphasis described below for each one:
Community Enrichment – This includes grants in:
- Arts & Culture
- Community and Multi-Use Facilities
- Youth Development
Community Enrichment Prequalification Form Deadline is March 15, 2013
Social Services – Our focus in this category is on:
- Basic Needs
- Protective Services, such as safehouses and children’s advocacy
Social Services Prequalification Form Deadline is August 1, 2013
Education – Within this category, our focus will be exclusively on:
- Early Childhood
- Higher Education/Post-Secondary
Education Prequalification Form Deadline is November 15, 2013
NOTE: Boettcher Foundation’s categorization may differ from other foundations.
Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions about the category under which your organization would be considered.
Like last year, we are using a “Prequalification Form” that helps you find out if your Colorado-based nonprofit may qualify for an opportunity to be invited to apply for a Boettcher Foundation capital grant. You must complete the prequalification form first!
