    Nonprofit Sabbatical Program Now Open for Applications

    Our nonprofit sabbatical program rewards long-term and respected nonprofit leaders in Colorado.

    Park bench in Alamosa, Colorado.

    Successfully leading a nonprofit in today’s world takes endless dedication and time. Nonprofit leaders are often so committed to their missions that spending time away to re-energize can be an afterthought. New this year, the Foundation has developed a nonprofit sabbatical program, now open for applications, to recognize and reward long-term and respected nonprofit leaders in Colorado and strengthen the organizations they lead by offering funds for interim leadership and staff capacity building.

    The Foundation will award two sabbaticals annually. Each sabbatical must be taken within 18 months of receipt of the award. The sabbatical award is made in the form of a grant – up to $95,000 – for charitable support to a Colorado-based nonprofit organization and includes:

    1. Grantee executive to take a three-to-four month hiatus for activities of their choice to reflect, rest and rejuvenate:
      • Up to $20,000 for sabbatical activities (e.g., professional development; travel; personal activities)
      • Between $25,000-$50,000 subsidy for salary and benefits (dependent on current salary)
    2. Grantee interim leadership needs (individual or a team):
      • Up to $10,000 dependent on the applicant’s interim plan and mutual agreement
    3. Grantee staff capacity building of their choice:
      • Up to $15,000 to be used during the sabbatical period or up to two years after receipt of the award
      • Organizations will need to demonstrate how staff have been involved in determining use of these funds to ensure that they are used for employee-directed needs

    The Foundation has engaged a technical assistance provider, Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF), to provide support to both interested applicants and awarded recipients. For questions about the program or application process, please contact Brian Kellaway, NFF associate director, by email or by phone at 617- 204-9772 ext. 303.

    Learn more about the program and register for a webinar on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1:30 p.m. for more in-depth information on the program and a live Q&A session. Applications are due by March 31, 2020.

    Foundation for Culture Exchange celebrates 15 years of solidarity work in Grand Junction’s Sister City with a special guest from El Salvador on November 2 at the Art Center

    GRAND JUNCTION—In November, the Foundation for Cultural Exchange (FCE) is celebrating 15 years of promoting cultural understanding and solidarity between the people of the Western Slope of Colorado and Grand Junction’s sister city of El Espino, El Salvador.

    The FCE will celebrate with a special anniversary event to honor sponsors and supporters from 6:00 p.m.-8:30.0 p.m. on Saturday, November 2 at the Art Center. The free event will feature a special guest from El Salvador; a graduation party theme for the four graduating high school seniors and two university graduates in El Espino; a silent auction with handmade art made by scholarship students and their families, local artists, and by Fernando Llort, El Salvador’s most prestigious artist; as well as Salvadoran food from La Pupuseria Food Truck and Fiesta Guadalajara, and a cash bar. Members of the press are welcome.

    The Grand Junction-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has accomplished much over the last fifteen years. It has inspired travelers from the Grand Valley to immerse themselves in the Salvadoran culture and to be taken in by the community of El Espino through its annual cultural immersion trips, where travelers stay with host families in the community and learn about the country’s culture and history. Over 120 Western Slope residents have made the journey to the Sister City through the FCE since 2005. This year marked the second annual spay/neuter campaign for the community’s dogs and cats in an effort to improve overall community health, sterilizing over 350 animals in three days.

    The organization’s cornerstone program is the scholarship fund it maintains for high school and university students in El Espino. Currently, more than 30 students in high school and college are attending school in El Salvador with FCE scholarships, and seven students have already graduated with university or technical degrees. The costs associated with high school make it virtually out of reach for most poor rural students like those in El Espino. The FCE also works with El Espino to support and fund development projects identified, planned and implemented by the community itself.

    “It’s incredible to look back on the past 15 years and all the lives that have been impacted both in El Espino and in our own community,” FCE President Anna Stout said. “Students in El Espino are literally transforming their communities. Former travelers have gone on to do some amazing things in Grand Junction and throughout the world because of the experience they had in El Salvador. The benefits of this sister city relationship truly go both directions.”

    The FCE funds its programs primarily by seeking individual and group sponsors to fund scholarships for students in El Espino. Each scholarship is funded by sponsors, primarily in the Grand Valley, who maintain regular, meaningful contact with their students.

    Scholarship students are selected based on financial need, academic merit and community-mindedness. For $300 per year, one can sponsor a high school scholarship student. For $1,000 per year, one can sponsor a university scholarship student. Partial scholarships are also available.

     

    The FCE was established when a group of Mesa State College students, which included Stout, returned from a Mesa State College trip to El Espino in June 2004, where they lived with families in the community and fell in love with its culture and people. The students incorporated the FCE as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in November 2004 and petitioned Grand Junction City Council for its endorsement of a formal sister city relationship with El Espino. City Council voted unanimously and the relationship was formalized in September 2005.

    For more information about the FCE or to donate, call Stout at 433-2897 or email [email protected]

    Stillhouse Junkies

    Stillhouse Junkies

    LIVE In The Radio Room! 

    They don’t play like junkies... They sound great! 

    — Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel

    AWARD-WINNING ORIGINAL ROOTS MUSIC FROM DURANGO, CO

    Stillhouse Junkies is a trio comprised of Alissa Wolf on fiddle and guitar, Cody Tinnin on bass and banjo, and Fred Kosak on guitar and mandolin. With all three band members sharing vocal duties and swapping instruments, the Junkies conjure a wide range of tonal landscapes that pay tribute to the iconic sounds of Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, Tim O'Brien, the Wood Brothers, John Hiatt, and countless others while breaking new musical ground with their genre-bending original material.

    VOCALS, FIDDLE, GUITAR / ALISSA WOLF

     Alissa began studying the violin at age 8. She followed her heart to numerous summer academies and has studied intensively through the Music in the Mountains Conservatory, the Sewanee Summer Music Festival, Meadowmount School of Music, the Mark O’Connor Fiddle Conference, and the Berklee College of Music Summer Programs. Inspired by attending local folk festivals such as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Alissa began exploring all types of music beyond classical including bluegrass, swing, and jazz. Through this she found her true passion – improvisation. While she attained a B.A. from the University of Puget Sound, she continued to play for the love of music.

     VOCALS, BASS, BANJO / CODY TINNIN

     Cody Tinnin was born in Page, Arizona and moved to the Durango area in 2001. Influenced by his father, Glenn, Cody started playing trombone at a young age and developed an ear for jazz. Cody began playing bass guitar and quickly transitioned to upright. Through his uncle, Bruce Tinnin, Cody refined his bluegrass chops and gained an affinity for traditional American music. Cody joined the Outta Hand String Band in 2004 before following his culinary passions to Austin, Texas. While in Austin, Cody frequented the live music scene, refining his palate for outlaw country music at venues such as the Hole in the Wall and the White Horse Saloon. After close to a decade deep in the heart of Texas, Cody returned to the Durango area. 

    VOCALS, GUITAR, MANDOLIN / FRED KOSAK 

    Fred has been musically active since first taking up the guitar at age 15. Over his 12 years as a professional musician, he has played in numerous ensembles of varying styles and instrumentations, ranging from funk cover bands to intimate acoustic duets. Over the past 15 years, Fred has played mandolin and guitar with numerous New England and Colorado-based roots musicians and acts, including Billy Wylder, Three Tall Pines, Acousticana, Creek River String Band, Ethan Robbins (Cold Chocolate), Greg Lizst (Crooked Still), Zach Hickman (Josh Ritter), the Professors of Bluegrass from Yale University, the Badly Bent, and more. In addition to his facility with a broad range of musical styles, he is a seasoned performer with experience at major festivals and storied venues alike.
