Since 2007, Rose Community Foundation has brought together diverse, talented and community-minded Jewish young adults to learn and give together and make a difference in the Greater Denver community.

Roots & Branches Foundation members begin their collaborative philanthropic journey by participating in a six-month program where they explore Jewish values, learn about community issues, and put the tools of strategic philanthropy to work, ultimately granting up to $50,000 together.

Joining Roots & Branches means becoming part of the next generation of funders at Rose Community Foundation and joining a network of nearly 200 program alumni who continue to gather to celebrate holidays, volunteer and make new connections.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rose Community Foundation is not facilitating a new cohort of Roots & Branches. Instead, program alumni are invited to build upon their experience in Roots & Branches and participate in shortened, virtual giving circles to address the community needs that have been exacerbated by the pandemic.

It is the Foundation’s hope to resume new cohorts of Roots & Branches Foundation when it is safe and comfortable to gather in-person. If you are interested in being notified of 2021 program updates, please contact Emily Kornhauser.
