Rose Community Foundation Announces $12.5 Million in Grants from Second Half of 2019

Denver, CO – Between July and December 2019, Rose Community Foundation awarded 809 grants totaling over $12.5 million. 160 grants totaling over $5.5 million were awarded from the Foundation’s historic program areas – Aging, Child and Family Development, Education, Health and Jewish Life – to nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the Greater Denver region. Restricted funds housed at the Foundation awarded 203 grants totaling over $3.1 million. 446 grants totaling over $3.9 million were directed by donor-advised funds housed at the Foundation. In total, Rose Community Foundation awarded over $18.5 million in grants in 2019 and has now awarded grants totaling over $306 million since its inception in 1995.

Following a year-long strategic planning process, Rose Community Foundation has developed a plan that will guide its work moving forward. As it works to operationalize the strategic plan, the Foundation is not accepting new applications for grants in its historic program areas. 2020 will be a transition year in which the Foundation develops the specific priorities and parameters that will guide its grantmaking going forward.

The strategic plan’s grantmaking goals are to (1) advance equity and justice in the Greater Denver region; (2) foster an inclusive and engaged Greater Denver; and (3) increase resources dedicated to strengthening the Greater Denver community. Opportunities to fund in pursuit of these impact goals exist across the Foundation’s longstanding focus areas; the goals also open new avenues to support areas of growing importance in Greater Denver (i.e., housing, transportation/mobility, economic opportunity, environment, arts and civic engagement).
