LOR helps bring local solutions to life quickly, by providing a startup boost. Learn more about our innovative work happening in Lander, Taos, and in the region.
Lander Connected is the new volunteer matchmaking service that’s helping residents in Fremont County address food security, shelter, increase access to masks, and meet other community needs. This community was full of people wanting to help but lacked a central hub to connect volunteers with the people that needed them. Lander Connected was the solution.

The LOR Foundation is excited to support Taos HIVE as it seeks federal funding that could bring a welcome boost to the project and the Taos community.
A revolving loan fund helps legacy families fix and rent their historic homes, adds affordable housing, creates jobs, and draws-in newcomers to the community.
