Supporting Our Nonprofits

2021 State of Nonprofits Survey

The last 18 months have tested the resilience of nonprofits across the country. In 2020, organizational needs were reflective of doing business as un-usual, including a shift to address COVID-19 safety protocols and prioritizing important technology upgrades to improve access for staff working remotely. The second State of Nonprofits in the Pikes Peak Region survey was completed in July 2021, providing insight for most pressing needs and intentions for returning to in-person or hybrid work models. A partnership between Quad Innovation Alliance, RNR Foundation, Spur Philanthropy, and Pikes Peak Community Foundation, this was a follow up to last year’s initial survey, with over 200 nonprofits responding.

We believe in the power of long-term sustained funding for nonprofits that will see you through the future.

Nonprofit organizations may create agency endowment funds under the Community Foundation. Agency endowment funds build a permanent source of steady income to stabilize and strengthen programs. We manage funds carefully and invest wisely. We also offer tools and resources to help nonprofits strategically grow their endowment. Below, you’ll find features on organizations in the Pikes Peak Region who maintain endowment funds at the Community Foundation.

Should you have interest in supporting any of these organizations, we encourage you to contact the organization or the Foundation directly.
