Non-Profit in the Spotlight

Each month, Aspen Public Radio highlights a different non-profit in the Roaring Fork Valley with a new feature, "Non-Profit in the Spotlight". These organizations support our community through the promotion of arts, music, animal well-being, education, environmental stewardship, social support and more. Tune in every week for a new episode focusing on a different aspect of each organization throughout the month.

If you know, or are part of, a local non-profit organization that would like to be featured on Aspen Public Radio's "Non-Profit in the Spotlight", please contact Cornelia Carpenter at cornelia@aspenpublicradio.org or (970) 920-9000.

This program is intended to highlight organizations that have limited budgets and operate primarily in the Roaring Fork Valley and are licensed as 501(c)(3) organizations.
