Colorado’s FOTH Experience: A Good Story Will Get You There


Reports from this year’s Foundations on the Hill are beginning to pour in. Joanne Kelley from Colorado Association of Funders had this to say about their delegation’s visits:

There were 14 of us in all — representing just about every type of funder making grants to nonprofits in communities all over the state (and every one of the state’s congressional districts.)

We had foundations of every size and stripe.  Some of them fund broadly and others focus on a single issue. Some focus on the entire state, while others invest locally and in rural communities. We had corporate foundations, family foundations, even out-of-state foundations with family connections to Colorado.

It’s no accident that we managed to get ample time with all nine members of our congressional delegation.  Just as a good story captures your attention, our diverse group did just that.
