DA’s office seeks nonprofit applications for court ordered donations

Sky-Hi News staff report

The Grand County District Attorney’s Office is seeking applications from Grand County nonprofits that want to receive court ordered charity contributions.

The DA’s office sometimes requires a defendant to make a charitable contribution in lieu of court or statutory fines as part of a plea bargain. The contributions to local nonprofits allow the defendant to give back directly to the community.

Grand County nonprofits can submit a request to be considered as an eligible recipient of these charitable donations. Applications will be reviewed by the DA’s office and appropriate recipients will be added to the list of eligible organizations.

Applications must be from secular, nonprofit charitable organizations that work in Grand County. In order to ensure the funds are directed to organizations in genuine need, the DA will not approve nonprofits with pre-existing robust financial resources.

Applications should provide information about the organization, the good it does for Grand County and describe its current source of funding. Applications can be mailed to the Grand County District Attorney’s Office, Attention Chief Deputy District Attorney Kathryn Dowdell at PO Box 168 Hot Sulphur Springs, CO 80451.
