Silverthorne awards more than $50,000 to nonprofits


Thirty-nine local nonprofits are getting a total of $50,420 from the Town of Silverthorne in a combination of cash grants and free or in-kind use of the Silverthorne Pavilion and Silverthorne Park and Recreation facilities.

The 2011 grants are the result of a county-wide grant application and review process that concluded this fall.

Cash donations from Silverthorne total $28,000 to 33 local nonprofits. In-kind use donations of the Pavilion are valued at $17,280, and are split among 15 organizations.

Silverthorne also awarded $5,140 in free or reduced fee use of the town’s amenities for youth sports to the High Country Soccer Association and Summit County Youth Baseball.

In addition to the nonprofit grant process, Silverthorne’s 2011 budget allocates $15,000 to the Schmidt Scholarship fund for high school seniors from Silverthorne. Scholarships will be awarded in April 2011 at the annual scholarship presentation night at Summit High School.

Applications for next year’s grant process will be available in June 2011, with an anticipated deadline in late August.
