The intent of the Catalyst Grant Program is to strengthen the internal capacity of organizations to achieve their goals related to the topics covered in the Rural Leadership Collaborative meetings. This is done through the distribution of capacity-building grants, which will range from $1,000-$10,000, to support the following types of projects:
Eligible Issue Areas
The Catalyst Grants will fund work in rural Colorado to move forward:
Only Colorado-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in good standing with the IRS or a local governmental entity located within the State of Colorado are eligible to apply. All applicants must have had at least one staff member, volunteer, or board member attend the collaborative meeting focused on one of the above issue areas.
The Boettcher Foundation will accept applications from organizations and collaborative groups from August 15-September 15, 2022. The application will only be live during this time. Notification of funding will occur on November 18, 2022. This is a competitive process and not all projects will be funded.
