New Loan Closing: Community Resource Center
Strengthening nonprofits across Colorado
Community Resource Center builds the capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities through comprehensive leadership development, education, and resource programs. They offer a variety of programs to Colorado nonprofits, including: Rural Philanthropy Days, a conference for nonprofits serving rural populations; the Colorado Participation Project, a partnership with human services organizations to encourage members of marginalized communities to register to vote; the Colorado Grants Guide, the first database of funding sources for Colorado nonprofits; and the Colorado Nonprofit Leadership and Management Program, which has trained more than 700 emerging nonprofit leaders over the past 25 years. Community Resource Center recently launched a program that leverages 75 Americorps volunteers to launch COVID-19 containment efforts across the state. This $250,000 bridge loan from NFF will allow Community Resource Center to continue offering this critical program until it is reimbursed by the state of Colorado later this year.
