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.

For 20 years, Telluride Foundation has focused its efforts on creative, entrepreneurial solutions to help solve the region’s most pressing challenges.

The Foundation provides year-round support to local organizations involved in health, human services, education, the arts, conservation, athletics and other community-based efforts. The Foundation makes cash grants to regional nonprofits and community groups, as well as provides capacity-building support to help strengthen their effectiveness.

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

Reporting to the Telluride Foundation Board of Directors and working closely with an up to 11-member Executive Committee, 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.
