The Eagle River Fund


The Eagle River Fund provides secure funding for river projects in the Eagle River Watershed for generations to come.

The Eagle River Fund has grown from an idea of Tom and Margie Gart to an endowment fund envisioned to reach and exceed $5 million, thanks to the collaborative work and support of multiple stakeholders and organizations. 


The Nature Conservancy and Yampa River Fund have provided guidance in the Eagle River Fund development process and continue to be a sounding board. 


The Eagle River Fund is overseen by a board of directors, with technical support by the Technical Advisory Committee, operationally managed by staff at the Eagle River Coalition (formerly Eagle River Watershed Council), and fiscally managed by Western Colorado Community Foundation. Earnings from this fund are granted out to eligible organizations for projects that meet the goals of the Fund.
