Welcome to the Telluride Foundation

Since 2000, the Foundation has been working hard to ensure our entire region has access to the resources it needs to improve the quality of life of all residents. We strive to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow with a focus on strengthening our robust community of nonprofits, serving our citizens and bolstering our region’s economic ecosystem; all to Make More Possible for everyone living and working in the Telluride region. If you share our passion for this place we all call home, you’re in good company. We’d love to talk.

Thinking Outside
The Box Canyon.

It takes the entire region to make Telluride the magnificent place that it is. Our community includes a diverse group of individuals, from ranchers in the west end town of Paradox, to die-hard ski enthusiasts in Telluride; from visitors and 2nd home owners in the Mountain Village to retired miners in Ouray, and everyone in-between. We think beyond our three canyon walls to help the entire region thrive. By coming together as a community, we can make more possible.
