Statement of Solidarity with Refugees and Immigrants
Metro Denver is home to people from around the world, including many who have fled the devastating effects of war, violence, poverty, and oppression, both distant and recent. They come here seeking new opportunities, freedom from fear, and a chance to participate in the dream of America. Our refugee and immigrant neighbors contribute mightily to the cultural, economic, educational, and spiritual tapestry of the community we share.
For many years, The Denver Foundation and donors, partners, and local communities have helped new Americans transition to a new culture, open businesses and nonprofits, build homes, acquire new trades and professional skills, and obtain scholarships to pursue higher education. We’ve seen the impact and transformation that’s possible when newcomers to our country are embraced as individuals with the inspiration and determination to build new lives and contribute to our shared community.
At The Denver Foundation, we are committed to building a better future for everyone, including the most vulnerable among us. To refugees and immigrants who call Metro Denver home, we stand beside you.
We also extend our gratitude to those who are providing support to refugees and immigrants, through donations, services and guidance, and friendship. To learn more about recent events and resources available for communities most impacted, please visit Denver Public Library.
Rooted and Committed: A letter from Christine Marquez-Hudson
As my first year as the President & CEO of The Denver Foundation comes to a close, I have been inspired by the depth and breadth of our connections to the community. I am grateful to be part of the longstanding tradition of philanthropy at the largest, oldest community foundation in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West.
We are rooted in Metro Denver and committed to the place we call home.
