“Colorado Springs is fortunate to have a number of ‘home grown’ nonprofit organizations that are in the trenches providing direct services to our community’s disadvantaged,” said Doris Ralston, executive director and CEO of the foundation. “Private nonprofit foundations are in the business of benefitting communities. Improving our nonprofit sector’s capacity to make a positive impact on the health of our community is the focus of the Colorado Springs Osteopathic Foundation’s grant program.”
In addition, the Foundation provides tuition scholarships to selected Osteopathic medical students from Colorado–with the goal that the recipients will return to Colorado to practice medicine upon completion of their education and training to help decrease the state’s physician shortage.
