The Crosby Endowment

A family endowment meant to be a perpetual gift for children and music ministries for the Montrose United Methodist Church.

MHS Stadium Fund

When the current Montrose High School was built in the 1960s, the local population was much smaller than it is today. As Montrose and its surrounding areas have grown, so have the needs for improvements to the Montrose Community Stadium. A group of civic-minded community leaders have turned to local businesses and private citizens to plan, fund, and execute a long-term plan that will benefit the entire community for years to come.   Hundreds of volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to move dirt and rocks, assemble bleachers, pour concrete, install electrical and plumbing systems, and paint walls. Much has already been accomplished, yet much more lies ahead.

Montrose Botanical Society Endowment

The Montrose Botanical Society is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that provides horticultural education and leadership for residents of the Uncompahgre Valley through the development of botanic gardens for demonstration, education and leisure. The Society created the Montrose Botanic Gardens to be an inspiration and an invaluable educational tool for residents as they strive to enhance a landscape that was once tumbleweed, sage and cactus.

Sustaining healthy lands for vibrant communities. Can you imagine life without our colorful aspen groves, recreational trails, and clean-running rivers?
