CSHF Announces New Grant Awards

Colorado Springs Health Foundation’s Board of Trustees recently awarded $3.4 million in new grants to 33 organizations working in El Paso and/or Teller Counties.  Some of these awards are multiyear in nature.

Since inception (grantmaking began in 2016), CSHF has awarded approximately $16 million in grants to local organizations working to improve our community’s health.

This year’s main funding opportunity grant cycle was the most competitive yet.  CSHF received more than $7 million in total requests (some of them multiyear), which included $5.3MM in requests for 2019 alone vs. the $2.5 MM remaining to payout this year.

Some of the larger grant awards made:

  • $900,000 over three years to the Pikes Peak Community College’s Healthcare Education Center Interdisciplinary Simulation Initiative
  • $600,000 over two years to The Trust for Public Land for its work in Panorama Park
  • $400,000 to Peak Vista Community Health Center for its new southeast Colorado Springs clinic
  • $300,000 over two years to Colorado Springs Food Rescue for its Hillside Hub Neighborhood Food Center
