The Community Focus Fund(CFF) program charter established that the Fund may provide donations to approved organizations to recognize the contributions of employee volunteers. The Utilities Board and City Council approved a grants budget for the Community Focus Fund for 2018. The process for requests and review of financial support of organizations will follow our historic steps.
The CFF program grants provide financial support to programs or projects that add to the quality of life in communities where Colorado Springs Utilities provides services and in communities which are significantly affected by its operations.
CFF focus areas
- Housing Assistance
- Safety and well-being
CFF funds may not support
- Personal requests
- Agency events
- Political candidates, committees or organizations
- Requests for administrative costs or capital campaigns
- Projects sponsored by religious organizations, unless the project is for general community benefit and does not promote any religious doctrine
- Any request that is not consistent with the mission of the Community Focus Fund and its eligibility requirements
All requests will be evaluated in light of their strategic alignment with Colorado Springs Utilities’ strategic plan and objectives.
