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.
Did you know that ACF’s grantmaking through the following funds is 100% reliant on the generosity of annual gifts?
Cradle to Career Initiative Fund
Mental Health Fund
Emergency Assitance Fund
Each year, ACF aims to raise $500,000 through our
End of Year Drive in order to fully support
our community grantmaking.

IRA Charitable Rollover
Congress has made permanent the IRA charitable rollover, which means that donors 70 1/2 and older may transfer up to $100,000 from an individual retirment account to a qualified charity without the distribution counting as taxable income. Note: rollovers may not be disbursed to donor advised funds or private foundations.
