The Colorado Center on Law and Policy received a $225,000 grant from the Thedore and Chandos Rice Charitable Foundation.

The grant will fund two post-graduate fellows at CCLP, both of whom started work earlier this month. Ben Felson, an international affairs and anthropology major, will work with the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute. Daniel Rheiner, who has studied the American political economy, will work with the nonprofit’s health care program.

The Theodore and Chandos Rice Charitable Foundation, as part of its divestiture plan, made a $225,000 gift to support post-graduate fellows at the Colorado Center on Law and Policy (CCLP), a nonpartisan research organization.

“We appreciate the generosity and legacy of Ted and Chandos Rice and appreciate being chosen to receive this contribution” said Christine Murphy, executive director of CCLP. “Chandos and Ted were true advocates for marginalized populations in our community, and we look forward to continuing their legacy through our Rice Fellows.”

The Colorado Center on Law and Policy is among a nonprofit focused on economic security, access to health care and sound fiscal policies.

The Theodore and Chandos Rice Charitable Foundation supported work that helps families, single parents and children become self-sufficient, contributing members of society through education and training; assists seniors in obtaining and enjoying meaningful and dignified living opportunities; and reduces the effects of intolerance, discrimination and prejudice in society.
