Investing in outstanding nonprofit organizations
in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming

Daniels Fund Grants Progam


The Daniels Fund provides grants to nonprofit organizations in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming that fit within our nine distinct funding areas. These funding areas were established by Bill Daniels, using the experiences and relationships of his life as motivation.

Our funding areas are core to our purpose and they do not change:
  We have revised our Utah grant strategy to focus on specific programs to maximize our impact. Click here for details.  
  We have revised our New Mexico grant strategy to focus primarily on education. Click here for details.  

Bill DanielsIn addition to being a fit within our funding areas, the nonprofit organizations we support focus on high quality results, and uphold the highest standards of ethics and integrity as they make a measurable difference in their communities.

Associates working for the Daniels Fund Grants Program spend a considerable amount of time in the various communities we serve. We come to personally know the area’s nonprofit organizations and their people. We consider the effectiveness and specialized aspects of programs and projects, and maintain an understanding of specific needs within each community.

We encourage nonprofit organizations whose work aligns with our funding areas and goals to apply for funding, and we welcome the opportunity to visit with you to discuss opportunities to support outstanding programs.

The Daniels Fund receives many more requests than can be funded. We make every effort to be as effective as possible in awarding grants for distribution.
