Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 at 11:44 AM

This week, the Boettcher Foundation announced it has awarded 20 Colorado nonprofits $815,000 in grants toward capital projects.

The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum got $25,000 for building restoration (an ongoing issue), while the Colorado Springs Conservatory got $40,000 to go toward the purchase and renovation of a facility to be used for programming and performances. The Conservatory will announce information related to that closer to January.

The span of projects is impressive. Other grantees include $20,000 for the expansion of the Gunnison Community and Aquatics Center for space for senior programming and $35,000 for Denver's Cleo Parker Robinson Dance to renovate performance space and dance studios. The Colorado FFA Foundation at Colorado State University pulled $50,000 for a new statewide Future Farmers of America training facility. Find a list of all 20 nonprofits in the PDF below.
