Virginia Christensen Trust Fund


The Virginia G. Christensen Fund was granted to the City of Creede in 1999.  Fund income is used to enrich the quality of life for residents and visitors to the Creede & Mineral County Area.  Since its receipt, the Virginia G. Christensen Fund has invested more than 1 million dollars into our area!

Virginia Christensen Funds support a wide range of community initiatives and projects in the Upper Rio Grande Area.  The Town of Creede acts as a Trustee of the Virginia Christensen Trust Fund.  Each spring, applicants may apply for funding and applications are generally due in mid-April.  Please see the Guidelines below or contact the Town Clerk for more information.

Good luck!
