Throughout the year, The Denver Foundation hosts Community Information and Pre-application Information Sessions to introduce our guidelines and grantmaking practices to nonprofits and resident groups in Metro Denver.

Our Pre-Application Information Session for our February 3, 2020 deadline was held on January 15th. The material covered in this session is highlighted in these informational videos. These videos feature information from various members of our Programs staff and will help inform your application process. For more details, please contact our Programs Assistant, Ashley Clevenger, via email or phone at 303.300.1790 ext 202.

The material covered in the Pre-Application Information Session can be found in our 2020 Community Grants Guidelines here. This will give you an idea of our funding priorities and introduce you to our objective areas. For more information, you can also visit the "Apply for a Grant" section of our website here for FAQs and additional guidance.
You can also listen to short podcast recordings from members of our Programs team here at the Foundation on Youtube by clicking the image below.
Once you have reviewed our grant guidelines and know which objective area you would like to apply, we strongly encourage you to schedule a 20-30 minute phone call with a Program Director to ensure your proposal aligns with our funding priorities and objective pathways. You can reach out to Programs Assistant Ashley Clevenger directly to schedule this call. 



Beginning in 2018, if you are applying for our Community Grants Program, you are requested to use the Foundation's online grant application portal.
