Our Mission

Aspen Community Foundation builds philanthropy and supports nonprofit organizations by connecting donors to community needs, building permanent charitable funds and bringing people together to solve community problems.

Through our community grantmaking to local nonprofits and as the backbone for the Aspen to Parachute Cradle to Career Initiative, ACF continues to expand opportunities for all to live healthy, independent lives. Because of people coming together, discovering new connections, and forming new collaborations, we are making real and lasting change for children and families.

NEW: Early Childhood Teacher Scholarship

The Early Childhood Teacher Scholarship Fund cultivates a quality workforce for Early Childhood Education and Care (ECE) by increasing the number of ECE teachers in our region who hold certificates, associates, or bachelor’s degrees.
