Our Work and Approach

We seek to maximize the impact of our donors’ investments. We do this by managing three approaches to our investment in the community:
grant advisory and implementation, existing project management and new program development and incubation.

Programs and Partnerships of Eagle Valley Community Foundation (EVCF)

Donors may make unrestricted gifts to EVCF to be invested at the discretion of the EVCF Board of Directors. We focus on issues that improve quality of life for workers in our service-based economy in the Eagle River Valley.

The flagship project of EVCF is The Community Market, addressing healthy food access for all. EVCF also invests in early childhood educator certification scholarships through Colorado Mountain College. Wellness is accessed through MIRA, Mobile Intercultural Resource Alliance, in partnership with Vail Health and Eagle County Public Health.

Grant Advisory and Implementation

We help donors make targeted investments in nonprofits that are doing work related to the donor’s passion.

EVCF partners with individuals, families, or grantors with a field of interest to advise them in strategic ways in investing in existing programs and developing new programs.

For Example:

A $100,000 grant was made to EVCF by an anonymous local family to reduce hunger in our valley.

EVCF worked with several local organizations to use that funding to prioritize and increase the capacity and impact of their work. EVCF created two new programs that complement existing work in fighting local hunger. This family understands our hands-on approach to investing their funds.

Existing Project Management

EVCF may manage or help to manage existing national or community programs that are consistent with our mission.

Non-Profit Collaboration and Communication

For several years, our great friend Beth Slifer has arranged and hosted a periodic gathering local non-profit leadership to foster communication, collaboration and understanding. EVCF is pleased to join Beth as a co-sponsor of this bi-annual event.

The gathering of local non-profit leaders is funded by Beth Slifer and EVCF Founding Families.
