Grant Spotlight: Making an Impact in Trinidad


Last month, El Pomar Foundation announced a major grant to Mt. Carmel Health, Wellness, and Community Center in Trinidad. Once a Catholic Church that served as a spiritual center to the area’s many Italian immigrants, today the 1907 structure is becoming the anchor of a new health and wellness center for the entire southeast region.

The grant represents a commitment from three of El Pomar’s internal grant-making pools including the competitive grant process, the Trustees Council, and the Southeast Regional Council. The $325,000 in total funding represents a significant commitment on the part of El Pomar Foundation’s trustees to health care in rural southern Colorado.
