Inspiring Dreams to Transform Communities in Huerfano County, Colorado


To enhance personal growth opportunities, and economic stability in rural communities by investing in the people of Huerfano County.


For nearly a century, the Bonicelli family has called Huerfano county home, raising multiple generations of their family directly within the community, in Walsenburg, La Veta, and Cuchara. Inspired to give back to their home, Jordan Bonicelli and his family founded Lokal Gives as an organization whose goal is to give back to the community that helped to shape them into the people they are today.

Led by Jordan’s vision, Lokal Gives is investing and working in our rural county to enhance the community’s financial capacity and acumen required to activate and develop sustainable success. Our Lokal Huerfano County businesses will be built around Lokal talent, inspired by tradition, and dedicated to donating a percentage of all profits Lokal-ly.

Lokal Gives cares about the community and seeks to bring the vibrance back to Huerfano county that once existed. By infusing time, investing dollars, and professional leadership into the community, Lokal Gives will partner with local residents to purchase, revitalize, or start up small businesses within the county.  As these businesses become established, Lokal Gives will work to transition majority ownership and operations to the local business owner, while continuing to commit a portion of each business’s profits to non-profit community organizations.
