Colorado Nonprofits, listen up!
What could YOUR organization do with an extra $500 to $1500? How would it feel to obtain some funds without spending weeks days, or even hours on complex grant applications or making dozens of donor phone calls?
This fall, Wells Fargo will contribute to more than 200 organizations in Colorado through the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund. In order to help our readers and customers, we’ve obtained a handful of applications for this program, so get ‘em while they’re hot!
Unless your 501(c)(3) nonprofit or charity organization has a bank account bursting with funding, or you simply can’t think of any ways you can help our community any further, this is for you!
You still have until June 30 to apply for this grant with Wells Fargo. The application is brief, and the odds are very good compared with many other grant opportunities. Strapped for time? Cobbling together a number of small grants with a low “brain damage” and time cost is a great way for a small organization to bootstrap its way to a larger budget and a more robust team.

As you see by the short application length (less than one page, plus the demographic information), nearly any Colorado tax-exempt organization is eligible to apply.
A qualified organization must have an IRS determination letter confirming its status as a 501(c)(3) organization and an annual operating budget of $350,000 or less. Average grant size is $500 to $1500. Requestors will be notified in writing of decisions by August 31, 2015.
IMPORTANT: The application may be dropped off at any Wells Fargo branch in Colorado by June 30. In the area that reads, “For questions and submission of application…” be sure to include the banker’s contact information as shown here:
