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.
Bindu Sky Pomeroy Memorial Fund
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.
Red Canyon High School Impact Fund
Sk8 Gypsum is a project designed for and led by students in our community. We aim to build a new 9,000-to-11,000 square feet cast-in-place and/or shotcrete concrete skate park facility in Gypsum. A well-designed skate park is a great way to bring community members together that might not usually come together. If we can create a skate park that is more desirable for older skaters, we will have a more positive community for youth that can’t commute out of town just yet, positively impacting the mental health epidemic our kids are facing, through a passion we all have, and a sport that is relatively free and accessible by all. It is clear that a new skate park could improve our community in more ways than we could imagine. A student involved in this project shared, “Skating has saved my life because it’s given me something to do and friendships and a community at the skatepark.”

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.
