About Us

The Estes Chamber Foundation was established in 2020 in response to the need for business relief and resiliency funding in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Seven months into that paradigm change, Estes Park was evacuated because of several wildfires threatening our perimeter. The overarching purpose of the Foundation is to create funding for grants that advance business continuity and the development of business skills in the Estes Valley. The Estes Chamber Foundation makes it easy to give back to the community in the simplest, most effective and tax-advantaged ways possible.

The purpose of this Foundation which may include, not as a restriction or enlargement of its purposes, but merely as illustration thereof, for charitable, educational, religious or scientific purposes and other subjects related to improving the efficiency, development and acceleration of both the quality and quantity of economic viability and employment and business opportunities through its efforts.
