We can build a better community together!
Sellars Project Space and the PfCA Program remain focused on strengthening the Upper Arkansas River Valley network of communities for youth, seniors and families with projects and programs that educate and bring people together. We can't do it without you! Here are three ways you can help.
Contribute What You Can
We understand that many people don't have extra cash in their coffers but can possibly give a bit here and there. We do ask for donations at all of our events and you can also donate below.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss your donation. Call (719) 221-9893 and ask for Mark or Jimmy. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have.
Contributing on a monthly basis supports our ongoing programs that have been established in the community. You can halt your subscription at anytime but we do ask for an annual commitment if possible.
Your annual contribution allows us to direct finances to specific programs while allocating a percentage of time and money towards establishing new projects or programs.
Your donations go towards organizing, staffing, and expenses of all of the PfCA's projects and programs. The funds are also used to support our work with a variety of area nonprofits, resource providers, and people just like you who are working to make our community better. These are administered in the form of in-kind Community Grants, through our area programs, or via our volunteer work.
Community Grant Awards
Whether we work to redesign a website, consult on strategic planning, organize an event, physically volunteer, or craft a combination of services to local organizations, our focus is building a stronger community through supporting nonprofits and community resource providers in every way possible, creating events that build community involvement, and assisting businesses in key areas to make them more resilient. These organizations have received in-kind volunteer work, discounts, and/or access to services in order to complete their projects. We weighed their need against what they provide our community. Some organizations have received multiple grants.
