Funding requests are reviewed by the Community Advocacy Decision Committee on a quarterly basis. Collectively, the committee reviews the application and scores the application based on Ent’s guidelines, impact categories (see above) and a decision matrix to determine an amount to award the requester, if any. The decision matrix includes criteria such as:
- Geographical reach
- Due diligence and impact if funding was awarded
- Volunteer opportunities available
Once the Decision Committee meets, nonprofit organizations will receive an email from Ent regarding their decision. If awarded, a check will be delivered through Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
