KSUT Receives El Pomar Foundation Grant From Their Colorado Assistance Fund In Support Of Summer Music Events


KSUT is thrilled to share that we received a $7,500 grant from El Pomar Foundation's Colorado Assistance Fund. This special fund was activated by El Pomar's Trustees to support nonprofits and communities convening around cultural events in pursuit of community connection and economic vitality in the wake of pandemic interruptions. These funds will support KSUT's two Party in the Park events (July 30th in Durango and July 31st in Pagosa Springs) and the 25th Four Corners Folk Festival over Labor Day weekend in Pagosa Springs.

El Pomar Foundation is one of the largest and oldest private foundations in Colorado. Spencer and Julie Penrose founded El Pomar in 1937, and the Foundation now contributes more than $22 million annually through grants and community stewardship programs to support Colorado nonprofit organizations involved in health, human services, education, arts and humanities and civic and community initiatives.

We could not be more grateful to El Pomar for this support, as we work hard to bring the communities of Southwest Colorado together through the love of live music, once again!
