As part of its regional partnerships program, El Pomar Foundation awarded four grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 to organizations nominated by El Pomar Foundation San Juan Regional Council members.

Two of the grants went to local organizations. San Juan Regional Council member Betsy Marston opted to split grant funds with $2,500 going to Delta County Memorial Hospital Foundation and the hospital's urgent care department. Another $2,500 was awarded to A Kidz Clinic, the school-based health clinic operated by Delta County Joint School District #50.

Since 2006, El Pomar has given over $3.2 million to the six-county San Juan region.

The regional partnerships program is geographically based and combines El Pomar Foundation and local resources to impact and serve the needs of Colorado communities. More than 70 community leaders make up 11 regional councils representing all 64 Colorado counties. Since 2003 the Councils have invested more than $15 million in their home communities.

El Pomar Foundation is one of the largest and oldest private foundations in Colorado. El Pomar contributes approximately $22 million annually through grants and community stewardship programs to support Colorado nonprofit organizations involved in health, human services, education, arts and humanities, and civic and community initiatives. Spencer and Julie Penrose founded El Pomar in 1937. To learn more about El Pomar Foundation please go to www.elpomar.org.
