the endowment challenge

You want to empower your nonprofit with lasting resources by starting an endowment. Through this special grant, the Weld Community Foundation can help this become a reality! 

Traditionally, to start an endowment with the Foundation the upfront investment is $20,000. But for nonprofits awarded the Endowment Challenge, you only need to initially raise $10,000. Then the awarded grant matches your investment with another $10,000. 

Your endowment will help secure your nonprofit’s great future work for decades to come. 
(This grant will open at the end of the year with a link to apply.)

In recent years, here are the nonprofits who have been awarded the Endowment Challenge Grant

“Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity and our Board are both deeply committed to the work that we do to eradicate poverty housing. The Endowment Challenge from Weld Community Foundation provided the perfect avenue for us to provide an opportunity for individuals, believers and supporters of our mission to invest in the longevity and sustainability of our organization and provide pathways out of poverty through affordable homeownership for families for generations to come.”
