The Arts

Metro Denver is home to a vibrant arts community, fueled by theater and dance; museums; public sculpture; murals and paintings; and music emanating from schools, concert halls, and clubs.

The Denver Foundation has been a key funder of the arts for generations, and we are especially grateful for the opportunity to help generous donors make a difference in the art forms that mean the most to them. Many Denver Foundation donor advisors are giving generously to dozens of different arts organizations. The Denver Art Museum alone received grants from 19 different Denver Foundation donor funds in 2012, totaling nearly $400,000.

Donors can help by giving directly to arts and cultural organizations through their donor-advised funds or by leaving a legacy gift so that the Foundation can steward the funds in perpetuity after their lifetime.

The Denver Foundation launched The Arts Affinity Group in 2013; please contact Kelly Purdy for more information.
