The Daniels Fund provides grants to support highly effective nonprofit organizations in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming through the Daniels Fund Grants Program.

Our funding areas and the specific geographic regions we serve were personally defined by Bill Daniels. We focus on supporting programs and organizations that uphold the highest ethical standards and engage in quality work to achieve significant results in the community. Following Bill's personal style, we strive to be compassionate, approachable, and responsive.

The Daniels Fund provides grants to highly effective nonprofit organizations offering programs and services that fit within our eight grant funding areas.
