Stonewall, Colo. – The Tercio Foundation, the local affiliate of Louis Bacon’s Moore Charitable Foundation, recently provided support to Stonewall Fire Protection District and Auxiliary for local scholarships and for their forest health programs aimed at lowering the risk of wildfires. Additionally, grants of almost $14,000 of support were provided to the Trinidad State Junior College Educational Foundation and its Booster Club for important education programs.

The funds also support our firefighters when they are battling wildfires each fire season. Thank you, Louis Bacon and the Tercio Foundation.” – Loyd Holliman, Chief, Stonewall Fire Protection District
