COLORADO SPRINGS, CO —  The Colorado Springs Health Foundation Board of Trustees recently approved $4.5 million in grants to 67 organizations serving El Paso and/or Teller Counties. Several of these grants are multiyear in nature. These grants address one or more of the Foundation’s funding focus areas:

  • Access to care for those in greatest need
  • Suicide prevention
  • Healthy environments
  • Trauma and resilience

These funding focus areas were developed and refined based on the Foundation’s mission, local needs, stakeholder input and insights, and the evidence behind what influences community health.

“We are honored to invest in the health of our region. We express our sincere gratitude to the organizations doing the difficult and important work of ensuring that everyone in El Paso and Teller Counties has the opportunity to reach their full health potential,” said Jim Johnson, Board Chairperson.
