Mission Statement: 

The EPNRC helps nonprofit organizations in the Estes Valley meet critical individual and family needs and enhance life in the community by providing nonprofit staff and volunteers resources, educational programs and opportunities to network and collaborate.



We partner with the Estes Valley Library to provide free access to the Foundation Center's Funding Information Network and the Colorado Grants Guide, in addition to an entire section of books and periodicals focused on nonprofit topics.

Educational Programs

Monthly workshops are held covering fundraising, grant writing, board development, marketing and other organizational development topics.

Networking and Collaboration

We encourage sharing among nonprofit leaders at monthly lunch & learn roundtables by facilitating discussion around nonprofit hot topics. EPNRC is also spearheading several projects to make more efficient use of resources through group pursuit of common goals.

Goals & Outcomes: 

Your support of the EPNRC will ensure the availability of resources needed by area nonprofits to recover and rebuild stronger. Our volunteer board and ¼ time director have valiantly tried to meet the support and educational needs of the nonprofits in our community. Through all of the recovery efforts and the process of bringing the idea of Mountain Strong for Nonprofits to fruition, it has become evident that a full-time director and part-time support staff person are necessary to achieve our mission.

Support all of the nonprofits in the Estes Valley by contributing to EPNRC’s $59,000 goal.


“As Director of a small nonprofit organization, I find the quality and availability of networking and training opportunities invaluable to my work. The EPNRC provides a wide range of free or low cost training events, pertinent to my work, and otherwise not available in our community. Without the EPNRC, I would need to travel to the Front Range area to access training of similar quality, and would not have the time nor funding to access the variety of opportunities offered right here.”

—Nancy Almond, Director, Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success

“The Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center provides invaluable support to the nonprofit community serving Estes Park and the surrounding communities. Often, it isn’t feasible for the staff of many of the small Estes Valley based nonprofit agencies to take advantage of trainings and technical support provided elsewhere in the state. The EPNRC fills the void by providing quality training and excellent networking opportunities.”

—Gordon Thibedeau, President and CEO, United Way of Larimer County

“With each year, the role EPNRC plays in the Estes Valley nonprofit community continues to expand. The EPNRC’s National Philanthropy Day event spotlights the role that philanthropy plays in our community and provides nonprofits with a valuable venue for critical outreach. And with the EPNRC’s help, a number of nonprofits are working to combine efforts to create a centralized planned giving initiative, including a web site, community education, and more. Through the EPNRC, we can combine efforts and resources to accomplish things that would be prohibitively expensive or impossible if attempted individually.”

—Charles A. Money, Executive Director, Rocky Mountain Conservancy

"In 2010, we had the idea of setting up a non-profit to purchase a building to house non-profits at an affordable rent. We were novices with an idea and an opportunity. The director of the EPNRC guided us through the process with enthusiasm and skilled advice; the result is the Bella Fortuna Center. If you need help, the EPNRC is ready to step up."

—Cynthia Krumme, Bella Fortuna Foundation
