We’re here to support Chaffee County
While CCCF is a young foundation, we are passionate about operating as frugally as possible in order to ensure we are growing the resources of the true heroes - the nonprofit organizations themselves. We also collaborate with Common Ground, the Marijuana Excise Tax board, the Town of Buena Vista and the City of Salida to ensure grant seeking and grant making is as streamlined as possible.
