Continuing Education & Workforce Skill Development

Grand County Higher Education (GCHE) was formed out of the need to provide residents a champion to reduce barriers to access to continuing education and workforce training opportunities that do not presently exist in Grand County.

Our Founding Partners

The Grand Foundation turned the need for access to higher education into reality in 2015 through the creation of a subsidiary Grand County Higher Education Board.

Additionally, the Sprout Foundation Fund, whose primary focus is to support 501C-3 organizations where emphasis is on children, youth and groups that benefit our community, provided the inaugural footing essential to getting Grand County Higher Education off the ground.

Grand County Higher Education was a venture within the Grand Foundation until August 2017 when independent 501C-3 nonprofit status was achieved.
