The Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors believes strongly in giving back to our community. 100% of the registration fees from the 2018 Concours and Motorcycle events will be divided evenly between the Cars & Colors Charities.

In 2017 funds were distributed to the 2 local charities listed below:

The Just For Kids Foundation serves children throughout the San Miguel Watershed, including the towns of Telluride, Norwood, Nucla, Naturita, Paradox and all points in between. JFK provides seed funds for start-up projects, operating grants, program support, capital needs and equipment. The foundation particularly targets projects with leadership opportunities for children and projects promoting self-sufficiency and responsibility, and annually supports college-bound youth through its Man of La Mancha Scholarship Program.

Since its founding in 2000, JFK has awarded funding to organizations and individuals who make positive impacts on the lives of children throughout the San Miguel Watershed. This most recent round of awards brings the overall total of Just for Kids Foundation distributions to over $1.6M.

These grants are made possible through fundraising from the annual Mountains to Desert Bike Ride and a matching grant from the Carstens Family Fund at the Denver Foundation.
