The Telluride Foundation established the “Good Neighbor Fund” to provide emergency assistance for local families and individuals with limited resources in times of financial crisis. The goal of the Good Neighbor Fund is to help individuals stay in the community and households stay intact during times of financial crisis. The Fund achieves this by providing one-time hardship grants to assist with certain qualified needs, including housing, transportation or medical treatment.  More information and the application can be found HERE.


The Ouray Community Response Fund provides emergency assistance for people in Ouray County.  This fund is available for those who have lived and worked in Ouray County for at least one year.  More information and the application (which is the same as the Good Neighbor Fund application) can be found HERE.

Donations to the GOOD NEIGHBOR FUND are tax deductible and can be made HERE.
