2019-2020 Open Request for Proposal

In March 2020, the 19th cohort of Rose Youth Foundation, will make grants totaling $60,000 to nonprofit organizations serving the greater Denver community that work to increase the access and affordability of mental health services for teens, ages 13 to 18, and reduce the stigma associated with getting help. The vision for the grants is to help teens address their mental health challenges and reduce the teen suicide attempt and death rates.

Rose Youth Foundation will accept proposals from organizations and programs that serve the seven-county Greater Denver community of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties. $60,000 is available to grant and we anticipate making grants that range from $10,000 to $20,000. Because funds are limited, it is anticipated that not all applicants will receive funding.

All applications must be received through Rose Community Foundation’s online grants portal by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 4, 2019. You will need to create or log into an existing account to view and complete the grant application.

More information about the grantmaking priority, eligibility, and application information is available here as a resource to help you prepare your proposal.
