Honoring Bill Daniels' direction to make life better for the people and communities of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming
"If you pick up the paper and read that the city's got a problem and needs something, don't wait to be asked. Let them know that you are part of the community and you're there to help them."
— Bill Daniels
Our communities are going through an unprecedented and difficult period as we deal with the COVID-19 outbreak. We hope you and your family and friends are staying safe and healthy during this challenging time.
Below are details on the Daniels Fund's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This page will be updated as the situation continues to evolve.
The Daniels Fund has committed more than $5 million for COVID-19 response across our four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Over the last several weeks, the Daniels Fund has provided more than $1.8 million in COVID-19-related support to 26 nonprofit partners that are helping those most affected by the pandemic, including donations to the Colorado COVID Relief Fund and the All Together NM Fund. In late May, the Daniels Fund Board of Directors allocated an additional $3.4 million for COVID-19 relief. We continue to work with our partners to stay up-to-date on community needs and how we can help.
We have reached out to our grantees to understand their challenges and needs, and are working with them to be as flexible as possible in supporting them during this unprecedented situation.
Many thanks to all the nonprofits supporting the people most impacted in our region. Below are some resources that may be helpful to nonprofit organizations.
Our Scholarship team has worked with Daniels Scholars to support them as they make decisions about their health and safety, assist with financial and housing challenges, and help them be successful as they transition to a new virtual academic environment.
