Fund Impact

Evaluation of the Colorado Health Access Fund

Understanding and sharing our learnings is important to The Denver Foundation. Prepared in partnership with the Colorado Health Institute, we publish an annual evaluation report about the impact of the fund. Our most recent evaluation report from 2018 is the third evaluation summary.

Excitingly, the third year of the Colorado Health Access Fund (the Fund) was a watershed year. The Fund increased support for programs that reach diverse populations in need of behavioral health services, with an emphasis on those in rural areas. This brought the three-year total of Coloradans served by the Fund to 75,000. An ever-increasing number of projects have a clear path to sustainability. 

Please download the 2019 Annual Evaluation Report-Executive Summary. The 2020 Annual Evaluation Report will be posted in the spring of 2021.
