Connecting People who Care with Causes that Matter

The Two Rivers Unrestricted Endowment (T.R.U.E) Fund was established as an endowed fund by local community leaders in Garfield County in order to build resources to help local nonprofits through annual grant distributions. Non-profit organizations providing services to people from the communities throughout Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, New Castle and surrounding communities are eligible and encouraged to apply for funding from the Two Rivers Unrestricted Endowment Fund (T.R.U.E), a local community fund of the Two Rivers Community Foundation and managed by the Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF). We have an annual summer grant cycle and applications can be found here when open. 

Western Colorado Community Foundation serves seven counties in western Colorado, including Ouray, managing charitable funds for community good.  Currently, the Community Foundation manages over 265 charitable funds totaling $80 million in assets and awards over $3.4 million in grants and scholarships annually.

Thank you to those who have supported our organization over the last 22 years! 

We couldn’t make these grants possible without your support.

2RCF has granted a total of $15,000 into the communities from Carbondale to New Castle for the most recent 2021 grant cycle. We are pleased to recognize the following organizations:
