Powering and elevating the important work of others.

Fiscal Sponsorship

We are an administrative “home” for many Eagle Valley causes.

Many people in the Eagle Valley are doing good work on behalf of our community. Many of these 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.

However, when they are a group of people working together on one specific project, without paid staff or overhead, then they do not have tax exempt status. As a service to important projects such as these, our Foundation provides fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to help build the capacity of these charitable projects.

Projects we have partnered include:

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. He left 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 with 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.

Red Canyon High School Impact Fund
Red Canyon High Schools is 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.

Sk8 Gypsum

Sk8 Gypsum is a project designed for and led by students in our community. They 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. By creating a skate park that is more desirable for older skaters, they envision a more positive community for youth and a positive impact on the mental health epidemic kids are facing. 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.”

Emergency Response Fund
