Current

The Daniels Fund, founded through the generous legacy of Bill Daniels, operates the Daniels Fund Grants Program and the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. The Daniels Fund Grants Program supports nonprofit organizations in our four-state region as well as national programs. Each year, approximately 70% of the Daniels Fund’s community investments are made through the Daniels Fund Grants Program in the following areas: Aging, Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, Amateur Sports, Disabilities, Early Childhood Education, K-12 Education Reform, Ethics and Integrity in Education, Homeless and Disadvantaged, and Youth Development. Each year, approximately 30% of the Daniels Fund’s allocations are made through the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program, which consists of the Daniels Scholarship and the Daniels Opportunity Scholarship. Daniels Scholarships are awarded in the spring to graduating high school seniors and are supplemental after other federal, state, institutional, and private financial aid and scholarships. Daniels Opportunity Scholarships are distributed to two and four-year colleges and universities in our four-state region so they may provide those funds to non-traditional students. In 2010, the Daniels Fund surpassed $377,343,453 in cumulative grants and scholarships awarded since 2000. In April 2010, the Daniels Fund named 257 new Daniels Scholars—deserving students with financial need who began attending colleges and universities across the United States this past fall. More than 2,000 Daniels Scholars have been named since the Daniels Fund was established in the year 2000.
