COVID-19 is affecting everyone in our region. At the Telluride Foundation, we will deploy every resource available to assist our community through this difficult time. This COVID-19 Individual and Family Resource page aims to provide a location where you can access or get directed to how to volunteer, donate or access services available to you and your family.

DONATE: We hope that those of us who can, will donate to the Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund to help us provide critical services to those most in need. Click HERE for more information.

VOLUNTEER: Many people in our region need assistance. School lunches need to be made and distributed to children; elderly residents who have been told to stay home need assistance buying groceries and getting safely to critical medical appointments. If you would like to volunteer please click HERE.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Good Neighbor Fund (GNF): March 13, 2021, effectively immediately, the Telluride Foundation regrets to announce that it can no longer accept Good Neighbor Fund (GNF) assistance applications due to lack of funding.

Please note that this notice DOES NOT apply to the Ouray County Response Fund (GNF assistance for residents of Ouray County) or GNF San Miguel County Behavioral Health applications. We still have funds available for these two programs.

The Telluride Foundation hopes that this situation is temporary and will  keep the community updated as soon as we can accept applications again.
