Western Colorado Community FoundationCitizens State Bank’s mission will continue to be the same that it has always been: Partnering with people and businesses to make the communities we serve successful today and sustainable tomorrow.

To impact our communities in greater ways, we are proud funding partners with the Western Colorado Community Foundation. Qualified organizations are invited to apply to the Ouray County Community Fund and San Juan County Community Fund. Applicants must be registered as a nonprofit organization as recognized by the IRS and in good standing with the Colorado Secretary of State. Application process opens July 15th and closes September 15, 2018. A group of local leaders will review proposals and make decisions about granting funding to be distributed by November 2018 at the latest. The Western Colorado Community fund partnership is intended for the Ouray, Ridgway and Silverton communities. The Citizens State Bank is working on partnering with the Telluride Foundation for the Naturita community.
