Breck to give estimated $3.5M in 2011

Breckenridge officials estimate the town will donate almost $3.5 million this year, through cash and in-kind services given to local nonprofit organizations and community programs, according to a statement released from the town this week.

The town council kicked the year of giving off Tuesday before its work session, awarding a total $230,000 to local organizations through the town’s grants program.

Through the program, Breckenridge provides money to nonprofit agencies that provide human services or put on events or cultural programs that fall under the categories of marketing – programs and events that will draw visitors to Breck – and human services, which encompasses community programs and services.

In 2011, Breckenridge also budgeted $24,000 for two scholarships: one for Summit High seniors and the other for the Junior Athletes program. The town also provides $270,000 to the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance and $600,000 to town preschool and day care programs.

Applicants looking to secure funding through the Breckenridge grant program must provide proof of nonprofit status and go through the county grant process in September.
