We Make Change Happen.

The mission of the Local First Foundation is to build self-reliance, sense of place, and well-being for the stakeholders of the La Plata County community.

Local Self-Reliance

The Local First Foundation works to build an economy that values people, the planet, and prosperity for everyone. In the short time since our formation in 2019, our initiatives have already made an immense impact.
