Powderhorn Mountain Resort supports many charitable and civic organizations, both with cash and in-kind contributions. We frequently receive requests for gift certificates or passes/tickets, which not-for-profit organizations then sell or auction to raise funds.
We remain committed to supporting our community. However, we cannot honor every request for assistance that we receive. If you are a philanthropic organization and desire a contribution from us, we ask that you first review the guidelines below. All donations will be considered by the contributions committee. The committee is made up of members from the management staff that rotate periodically. Requests submitted to an individual employee will not be considered.
To be considered for a donation, all requests must be submitted in writing to the Charitable Donations Committee at least 45 days prior to your event.
Donations will not be discussed over the phone.
TAX EXEMPT STATUS: Our policy is to limit our support to organizations which have been recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
SECULAR ORGANIZATIONS: Although we are mindful and appreciative of the charitable work done by religious organizations, it is our policy only to support secular organizations.
GEOGRAPHIC or GROUP LIMITATIONS: Although we do not limit our giving to only local organizations, we do give preference to organizations which support the local community in some fashion. We also give preference to those organizations that support and promote youth sports such as skiing and snowboarding.
WE GIVE DIRECTLY TO CHARITIES: We are mindful of the good that is done by community foundations and organizations and it is our policy to give directly to the organizations that perform these community services.
