The Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado administers a philanthropy program for Primus Restaurant, including monitoring donation requests and creating a program to support a different nonprofit each month with a portion of proceeds from the restaurant.
When Primus opened this summer, owners John and Kerry Daly partnered with the Community Foundation to establish a convenient, impactful way to give back to the community that has been so supportive of them.
Women’s Resource Center and Durango Nature Studies have each received $500 grants as part of Primus’ giving program. November’s nonprofit recipient is the La Plata County Humane Society and December’s nonprofit recipient is Manna. A portion of proceeds from restaurant sales each month is donated through the Community Foundation to support local causes.
Nonprofits interested in requesting donations from Primus may contact the Community Foundation at 375-5807.
