Feasibility Study Complete!

For many years the idea of a Community Foundation had surfaced among community leaders throughout the San Luis Valley. In January 2015, a group of valley-wide community leaders participated in a facilitated meeting, led by a consultant, to discuss community wealth building and the possibility of a regional Community Foundation. One of the outcomes of the facilitated session was a decision to conduct a feasibility study to determine the viability of such a concept.
