PWV Operating Fund - Donations

The operating fund of the annual budget relates to providing training, materials, tools, safety and other supplies and supporting services for patrolling, maintaining, and restoring the hiking trails and camping areas and educating the public on the use of trails in the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forest area and Pawnee National Grassland.

PWV Endowment Fund - Donations

By making an unrestricted gift to the Poudre Wilderness Volunteers Endowment Fund, you can help preserve the legacy of Poudre Wilderness Volunteers, providing a reliable financial structure for the organization to enable it to continue to recruit, train and outfit those dedicated volunteers for years to come.

In 2010, PWV Co-Founder Chuck Bell was awarded the National Points of Light Volunteer Leader Award from the University of Phoenix and the HandsOn Network and designated Poudre Wilderness Volunteers as the recipient of the generous $10,000 award. The Board of Directors voted to use this award as seed money for the creation of an unrestricted Endowment Fund. Welcoming this decision, Chuck said, “PWV has matured into a very solid organization that will be around for years to come. It deserves the financial stability an endowment can provide.”
