We are encouraging families to get their applications in by November 8, space is limited so early applications are best.

We at HOPE of the Grand Valley do love welcoming new families, especially this time of year.

We are a unique; one of a kind organization; doing our best to fill the gap by supporting underemployed families that are not receiving other assistance.

We are fortunate to serve ever-increasing numbers of hard-working families. This segment of the population is growing, yet typically over looked and often struggling and are working tirelessly, paying their bills, and doing everything in their power to provide their children with food, clothing, and shelter without public assistance.

We at HOPE of the Grand Valley want to take the stress off of families by providing them a wonderful Christmas! By doing this, families will not have to worry, and they will have money saved to pay their bills come January. 

Our focus is to fill the gaps with our working parents with children that are struggling to make ends meet.

If this sounds like you;

Nonprofit Sabbatical Program Now Open for Applications

Our nonprofit sabbatical program rewards long-term and respected nonprofit leaders in Colorado.

Park bench in Alamosa, Colorado.

Successfully leading a nonprofit in today’s world takes endless dedication and time. Nonprofit leaders are often so committed to their missions that spending time away to re-energize can be an afterthought. New this year, the Foundation has developed a nonprofit sabbatical program, now open for applications, to recognize and reward long-term and respected nonprofit leaders in Colorado and strengthen the organizations they lead by offering funds for interim leadership and staff capacity building.

The Foundation will award two sabbaticals annually. Each sabbatical must be taken within 18 months of receipt of the award. The sabbatical award is made in the form of a grant – up to $95,000 – for charitable support to a Colorado-based nonprofit organization and includes:

  1. Grantee executive to take a three-to-four month hiatus for activities of their choice to reflect, rest and rejuvenate:
    • Up to $20,000 for sabbatical activities (e.g., professional development; travel; personal activities)
    • Between $25,000-$50,000 subsidy for salary and benefits (dependent on current salary)
  2. Grantee interim leadership needs (individual or a team):
    • Up to $10,000 dependent on the applicant’s interim plan and mutual agreement
  3. Grantee staff capacity building of their choice:
    • Up to $15,000 to be used during the sabbatical period or up to two years after receipt of the award
    • Organizations will need to demonstrate how staff have been involved in determining use of these funds to ensure that they are used for employee-directed needs

The Foundation has engaged a technical assistance provider, Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF), to provide support to both interested applicants and awarded recipients. For questions about the program or application process, please contact Brian Kellaway, NFF associate director, by email or by phone at 617- 204-9772 ext. 303.

Learn more about the program and register for a webinar on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1:30 p.m. for more in-depth information on the program and a live Q&A session. Applications are due by March 31, 2020.
