We accept applications for programs that serve the seven-county Greater Denver area of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties. Programs with a broader geographic focus may apply, however, the application must address its relevance to people living within these seven counties.
Prior to applying, please review the program areas' prorities which are described in each of the program area guidelines pages noted below. An application will be considered for funding only if it addresses a priority within our program areas.
We encourage applicants to speak to a program officer prior to submitting an application to discuss their program, project or organization.
Each year, the Foundation dedicates a small portion of its grantmaking budget to the Opportunities and Innovation Fund, which considers a limited number of proposals for projects that exclusively address these values.
