COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - The Bright Future Foundation for Eagle County ($5,000) and The Youth Foundation ($10,000) recently received grants from Colorado Springs- based El Pomar Foundation. The grants were recommended by El Pomar's High Country Regional Council, a local advisory board representing five counties in Colorado's rural resort region. Locally, Steve Suggs is a member of the High Country Regional Council. The Council recommends up to $200,000 in grants each year to the trustees of El Pomar Foundation.

The Youth Foundation provides and supports programs that serve economically disadvantaged youth in Eagle County from pre-school through college.

In addition, Kathy Brendza has recently rolled off El Pomar Foundation's High Country Regional Council. The foundation thanked Brendza for her work on behalf of local nonprofits in Eagle County and the surrounding area. Brendza served on El Pomar's High Country Regional Council since 2007.
