The Western Colorado Community Foundation is looking to commission a signature piece of art that captures the mission and purpose of their organization and their new Center for Philanthropy for Western Colorado. Proposed themes include generosity, giving back, gratitude, helping hands.

About the Organization: we are a “home grown” charitable foundation with many donors and many funding interests. We promote local philanthropy in seven counties in western Colorado. One of our slogans is “leave your mark... charitable funds for community good.” Another of our slogans is “connecting people who care with causes that matter.” A third slogan (for our community foundation field) is “For good. Forever.” Western Colorado Community Foundation manages $150 M in charitable endowment funds and distributes approximately $5.5 M in grants and scholarships each year (2022). We also develop new programs and initiatives like the Lunch Lizard summer food truck program.

Location: Main Lobby of Western Colorado Community Foundation’s Center for Philanthropy, 128 North 5th Street, Grand Junction, CO.
