Grant Recipients

Pueblo grantees are engaged as equal partners in the work of the foundation and play a major role in grant making decisions. By focusing on relationship and outreach, the Foundation board and staff continue to provide grant resources and assistance in a manner that strengthens capacity and empowers people to act, “to do the work themselves” according to their core values for the benefit of their communities. 

Relationships and trust have deepened and evolved over almost 30 years which has allowed the Foundation to more keenly understand the “real” issues in Pueblo communities.  As a result, grantees point to improved relationships and inter-connectedness within their communities as well as better bridges with the outside community.
