The Catamount Institute received a $25,000 grant from the El Pomar Foundation.
The grant will be used to focus education efforts in school children, as well as to support the Pikes Peak Sustainable Business Network.
Catamount is a nonprofit, ecological leadership organization that focuses on improving sustainability throughout the Pikes Peak region.
As the organization’s programs grow, it has had trouble meeting demand, said Eric Cefus, executive director at Catamount.
“We must meet these demands while growing our capacity both thoughtfully and responsibly,” he said. “The financial support from El Pomar allows us to further our contributions to the entire region.
