For the first two quarters of 2020, we are not accepting new applications for grants in our program areas.

Following a year-long strategic planning process, Rose Community Foundation has developed a strategic plan that will guide our work moving forward. 2020 will be a transition year in which we will operationalize our new strategic plan and develop the specific priorities and parameters that will guide our grantmaking beginning in the third quarter of 2020.

For nonprofit partners who have received regular, significant and longstanding support from us, we will be in touch soon about transition grants to ensure your critical work is not interrupted by our funding evolution. If you are a longstanding program-area grantee or have questions about this transition, please contact your program officer.

The grant application portal is and will remain open continuously for donor-directed, invitational and RFP grants. Thank you for your patience during this period of change.

Geographic Funding Areas

We accept applications for programs that serve the seven-county Greater Denver community of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties. Programs with a broader geographic focus may apply, however, the application must address the program’s relevance to and impact on people living within these seven counties.

Grants Portal

The grants portal is the one-stop-shop for managing your application to, or grant from, Rose Community Foundation. All applications and associated documentation (grant reports, proof of matching funds, etc.) will need to be accessed, completed and submitted through your online portal. If you have any difficulties with the grants portal, please contact Kelli Rojas.
