Community Support Funding Application is now LIVE

The City of Durango Community Support Funding Application is now LIVE on our website! If you are interested in applying this year, please visit https://unitedway-swco.org/csf-application/ and help us spread the word! This application is open to all nonprofits serving residents in the City of Durango. Please pass this e-mail along to any other eligible nonprofits you know that may be interested in applying.

The application process is as follows:

  • Register on our website to complete and submit this year’s application
  • Our volunteer review committee will review all submitted applications and pass along any clarifying questions they may have about your application via email
  • Depending on the number of applicants, each organization will have a 3-8 minute interview with our review committee via Zoom. This will be structured as a Q&A from the committee. Applicants will have the opportunity to use any remaining time as they see fit, including screen sharing additional information/visuals they may have. Please note the Q&A may take up the entire interview time.
  • Our review committee will then deliberate and provide funding suggestions to Durango City Councilors

Here is a rough breakdown of the timeline/process:

  • Friday, November 13 – Application is live
  • Friday, November 27, 11:59pm – Application deadline
  • Week of November 30 – I will reach out to applicants with interview dates and times
  • Week of  December 7 – Interviews will be held via Zoom
  • Week of December 14 – Recommendations will be made to Durango City Councilors 
  • Before year-end (hopefully – this will be dictated by City Council) – notifications will go out to all applicants

Please help us spread the word to other eligible nonprofits.
