Fiscal Sponsorship

As a service to important local projects, Eagle Valley Community Foundation serves as the administrative “home” for a variety of causes in the Eagle Valley. EVCF provides fiduciary oversight, financial management and other administrative services to help build the capacity of these charitable projects.

You may donate to all of these agencies through this website.

 

Adam Palmer Sustainability Fund

The Palmer Fund was first envisioned in the summer of 2021 after the tragic death of Adam Palmer, Andy Jessen, and Seth Bossung in an avalanche near Silverton, CO on February 1st, 2021. Adam was a champion for sustainability as an Eagle Town Council member and beyond. The Palmer Fund intends to honor Adam’s legacy by supporting local economic and community development through the lens of sustainability. The mission of the Palmer Fund is to partner with community leaders to achieve net-zero carbon consumption in the Town of Eagle by 2030 through philanthropy, green infrastructure, revolving loans, and grant funding. 

Bindu Sky Pomeroy Memorial Fund

The Bindu Sky Pomeroy Memorial fund was created after Bindu Sky Pomeroy, beloved Vail Valley local, snowboarder, teacher, brother, son and friend of many tragically passed away on November 27, 2018, leaving a legacy many hope to carry on. In Bindu’s memory, honoring his giant heart and his outrageous passion for life, some legacy projects were created to have a lasting impact in Eagle County and beyond. Some scholarship awards are being presented to local students in financial need who have a passion for both academic and athletic excellence, including an annual Bindu Sky Spirit Award to support a local high school student’s dream of pursuing their passion in snowboarding or skiing as well as an ongoing secular mindfulness-based school program to “Educate The Heart”. 

Eagle County Veterans Assistance Fund

Eagle County is home to thousands of military veterans, many of whom struggle to return to civilian life. Vail Veterans Program Founder Cheryl Jensen has collaborated Johnson & Johnson to establish a national program to help military veterans accept their challenges and develop a plan for success. EVCF and Vail Veterans Program identified and funded local veterans willing to participate in the national program.

As one veteran described,

“The Johnson and Johnson’s Human Performance Institute really impacted my perception of my best self in a positive way.”

Emergency Response Fund

A locally controlled relief fund, it was created to respond to urgent community needs brought on by broad-based emergencies, disasters or crises.

Mountain Recreation Foundation

Built upon the same core belief of the Recreation District that everyone deserves to be healthy and happy, the Foundation aims to privately fund capital improvements, create an ever-flowing scholarship endowment, and endow necessary resources to preserve the District’s high quality facilities.

Red Canyon High School Impact Fund

Red Canyon High Schools is a community centered around meeting the diverse needs of our students in order to develop individuals who are: respectful, community-minded, hopeful, and self-aware. RCHS provides a safe “non-traditional” learning environment, where all students acquire the skills, knowledge, and behaviors necessary to be productive citizens in an ever-changing world. This fund supports RCHS students facing challenges, assisting with the continuation and completion of their high school education.

Each of the above projects do not have tax exempt status because they are a group of people working together on one specific project, without paid staff and overhead. The projects are a good match for Eagle Valley Community Foundation’s goal of working on issues that impact quality of life for all residents in the Eagle Valley.
