Telluride Foundation

In 2000, a group of local residents recognized a need for community assistance to support the workforce in the region and to keep Telluride and its surrounding rural communities thriving. Thirteen individuals each donated $100,000, kicking off the beginning of the Telluride Foundation. Today, the Foundation has raised and invested over $65 million in the region to help improve the lives of those who live and work in the Foundation’s service area of San Miguel County, Ouray County, and parts of Montrose and Dolores Counties, Colorado.

The Telluride Foundation serves a unique, remote and rural region of Southwest Colorado. This is a region of diversity, innovation and natural beauty, where people from all over the world come to recreate and to live.

The Telluride Foundation is seeking an innovative and dynamic leader to serve as its CEO.

As only the second CEO in the Foundation’s history, this is a rare opportunity to take the helm of a bold organization, leading it into its next chapter following long-time CEO Paul Major, with an opportunity to have sustained and meaningful impact at the individual, community and national level.

Reporting to the Telluride Foundation Board of Directors, the CEO will provide vision and leadership for Telluride Foundation in service of its mission and is responsible for the overall strategic, financial and cultural success of the organization and its six staff and 33 Board members.
