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


The Denver Foundation will launch a new strategic framework, including new grant priorities and timelines, in early 2021. We look forward to sharing this new plan with you. In the meantime, only organizations that received awards in the February 1, 2020 Community Grant cycle are invited to submit applications for the first grant cycle in 2021. Applications are due by Monday, February 1, 2021 @ 5 p.m.

We fund 501(c)(3) organizations and collaborative efforts among 501(c)(3) organizations and other groups in the seven-county Metro Denver.
