Rose Community Foundation grant opportunities include a blend of open-call, invite-only and responsive grantmaking. Along with continued grantmaking to support the region’s Jewish communal organizations, given the Foundation’s roots in the Jewish community, our grantmaking is structured around the following interconnected thematic areas:

Elevating the Voices of Communities Impacted by Inequity.

Grant recipients include nonprofits amplifying the voices and advancing the priorities of those furthest from opportunity. Efforts range from policy and advocacy activities that cultivate systems change or influence the levers of policy to community organizing, leadership development and voter engagement efforts that help build a base for inclusive civic engagement.

Advancing a Thriving Metro Region.

Grant recipients include nonprofits working to remove barriers to self-sufficiency, wellbeing and wealth building. We seek to close gaps in access and opportunity and increase pathways to success for individuals and communities furthest from opportunity.

Fostering Welcoming Communities.

Grant recipients include organizations creating environments where individuals of all backgrounds feel respected, supported, safe and valued, and can successfully live, work, create and belong. Efforts aim to strengthen communities’ resiliency, vibrancy and opportunities for cross-cultural exchange.

These thematic areas are inclusive of multiple strategies and audiences, including our deep connection to the region’s Jewish community, our longstanding commitment to immigrants and refugees, as well as other communities facing systemic barriers to opportunity. This framework captures our staff-directed grantmaking, as well as additional work we do in partnership with peer funders, including the Newcomers Fund and the Colorado Media Project.
