General Community Grantmaking
Along with continued grantmaking in the region’s Jewish community, the Foundation dedicates its programmatic funds to achieving the following three goals:
- Advancing equity and justice
- Fostering an inclusive and engaged Greater Denver
- Increasing resources dedicated to strengthening the region
To advance these goals, we fund nonprofits and organizations working in a variety of issue areas and with a wide range of populations. The challenges and opportunities facing our community are interconnected, and we seek levers for change that are intersectional across pathways. Additionally, our unwavering commitment to anti-hate and anti-discrimination is embedded throughout our work.
This framework guides our grantmaking as well as our policy and advocacy approaches:
