Meeting the moment: 

A 2020 Report to the Community

Our new report, Meeting the Moment: A 2020 Report to the Community, illustrates how The Denver Foundation has brought people together in this time of crisis, pooled resources, and put them to immediate use.

Community foundations are uniquely equipped for times like these. As this report makes clear, every aspect of our work has accelerated since the pandemic took root in our community. We listened deeply to understand the community’s most essential needs. In partnership with our generous donors, we activated our Critical Needs Fund to meet them.

Our fundholders responded with a similar urgency, dispatching more than $46 million to hundreds of nonprofit organizations helping people in Colorado and across the country stay safe and healthy.
