Building Community


The Denver Foundation recognizes that change often takes place at the grassroots level - in the neighborhoods and communities we serve.

To take action at the grassroots level, the Strengthening Neighborhoods Program (SNP) works with residents of partner neighborhoods to help them make their communities better places to live.

This program provides grants of up to $5,000 to support neighborhood projects that are as diverse as the ideas and imagination of the residents who create them. The only requirement is that projects be done by residents for the benefit of their community.

SNP's grants focus on improving life in eight Denver neighborhoods, Commerce City and Original Aurora. Visit to learn more.
