As the holiday season approaches, many people think about charitable donations. Philanthropy can take many forms, and one common outlet is foundations.  These organizations are typically nonprofits, and manage donated money and assets to provide grants for community projects.

Jodi Peterson interviews representatives from three Western Slope foundations about the support they provide for local education, health and social issues. The program starts with an overview of Rural Philanthropy Days, an event held twice a year which connects Front Range foundations with rural nonprofits that need their support.
