Sterling Community Fund

The Sterling Community Fund is an endowment created by local residents to provide a sustainable funding source for projects that make Logan County a more attractive place to live, raise a family, establish a business, and retire.

Projects may include amenities that play a key role in attracting people and industry to the area. Examples include a community center, children’s splash park, expanded hiking/ biking trails, green space, and public displays of art. Funding such projects would not be possible without charitable support. Distributions from the fund may also be used as matching funds to encourage private donations to specific projects or leveraged as matching funds for external grants received by the city or county.

A committee of seven community members will determine what projects are funded. Public input is welcome.

The SCF Committee’s initial goal is to raise $2 - $3 million, which will produce more than $100,000 each year for local projects. Over time, the Fund will have greater impact as it grows through donations and investment returns.

The Sterling Community Fund is part of the Eastern Colorado Community Fund portfolio, which is a grouping of all funds designated to benefit communities or charitable organizations in Eastern Colorado.

The pioneer spirit is alive and well in Logan County as we come together to help mitigate the economic repercussions of COVID-19 restrictions for our local restaurants. To this end, the Sterling Community Fund is joining forces with the Logan County Economic Development Corporation and the Logan County Chamber of Commerce to launch Project Help Out – Carry Out, a community effort to benefit all Logan County restaurants.
