El Pomar Foundation making moves to expand its enrichment programs

EAGLE COUNTY — Does your organization have an after-school or summer enrichment program?

The El Pomar Foundation’s High Country Council, which serves Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake, Pitkin and Summit counties, is accepting requests for proposals from organizations that provide or seek to provide quality out-of-school programs.

Applications will be accepted through April 10.

A focus of the council, which is part of El Pomar’s regional partnership program, is helping children realize their full potential by extending the positive benefits of participation in after-school and summer programs to all students.

Organizations must be a 501(c)3 or government equivalent and provide quality out-of-school programs for students who lack access. Ideally, recipient organizations already serve under-resourced, low-income or otherwise at-risk youth.
