Two Rivers Community Foundation and WCCF award annual grants
The 2 Rivers Community Foundation (2RCF) in conjunction with the Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF) recently awarded multiple grants to local community foundations at its November board meeting.
The grant recipients included Junior Achievement, a nonprofit youth organization using local community volunteers to teach the key concepts of work readiness and entrepreneurship to K-12 students; (co) studio, a collaborative nonprofit that brings together community investors and mentors to provide valley high school students with a unique learning experience; The Aaron Roberts Gray Memorial Fund, a scholarship fund in memory of Aaron Roberts Gray, a former Glenwood Springs High School student; and the Center for the Arts Summer Concert Series, which provides free concerts each summer in Two Rivers Park for music enthusiasts throughout the valley.
2RCF also awarded grants to River Bridge Regional Center, an organization dedicated to a child-centered approach to the prevention, assessment, treatment and investigation of child abuse; One Moment, an organization created to support those touched by pregnancy or early infant loss; Feed My Sheep, which provides the basic necessities for the survival of the local homeless in the Roaring Fork Valley; Windwalkers, a family-oriented, equine-assisted learning and therapy center to aid in the development and growth of those with challenges; and Mountain Madrigals, which has been entertaining audiences in the Roaring Fork Valley with holiday concerts since 1981.
The 2 Rivers Community Foundation was established in 1999 to benefit communities located along the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers by supporting local nonprofit organizations. More information about 2RCF can be found at 2RCF.org
