The Caring for Community fund is dedicated to serving communities from Aspen to Parachute through the funding of organizations which help facilitate a strong, healthy, supportive and productive community. To this end, grants will be focused on organizations providing community members support in times of critical need and allowing them the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Critical areas of focus include:

  • Healthcare, with specific emphasis on improving access to mental health and addiction counseling services
  • Crisis support – food aid, emergency relocation services, legal assistance
  • Safe and affordable housing
  • Educational and job training resources to ensure all people with specific emphasis on programs serving children and young adults, have the resources, support and opportunities necessary to be successful.
Funding will be particularly focused on opportunities to leverage dollars across the community effectively and expand programs where a need exists.

Caring for Community Fund helps Aspen Skiing Company employees take care of their co-workers and neighbors. It is funded by employees of Aspen Skiing Company and supported by a 2 for 1 matching commitment from the company. The fund is directed by an employee board. Employees who have never before given away money are deeply engaged in the process, learning about issues impacting their neighbor’s quality of life. Long after an employee serves on the board, many will continue to play active roles in the organizations and issues they learned about during their service.

COVID-19 COMMUNITY RELIEF

The world is facing a sudden and unprecedented crisis in the form of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The virus has spread to nearly all corners of the globe, including here in the Roaring Fork Valley — forcing the closure of mountain operations on all four mountains, shutting hotels and restaurants, and disrupting life in nearly every way. But one thing this virus cannot disrupt is our desire to look after each other.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to donate to the Aspen Snowmass and Roaring Fork Valley community, Caring For Community Fund is collecting donations to support local nonprofits that need your help during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Any contributions made through July 15, 2020 will be matched by the Aspen Skiing Company Family Fund at Aspen Community Foundation, up to $250,000, and 100% of those funds will be distributed to organizations providing access to food, internet, safe housing, rent and financial assistance.
