Through Community Grants, The Denver Foundation supports resident groups and nonprofit organizations in the seven-county Metro Denver area. All of our work reflects the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to reducing disparities and promoting equity for the most vulnerable members of our community, including people living in poverty, immigrants and refugees, and people of color.


The Denver Foundation carries out its mission of improving life in Metro Denver by investing in the vision, passion, and expertise of hundreds of nonprofit organizations and residents, and by working in partnership with our donors to give scholarships to help students further their educations.

We steward The Fund for Denver to meet the changing needs of the community now and for generations to come. Earnings from the endowment help local nonprofits through Community Grants, Technical Assistance Grants, the Inclusiveness Project, and Strengthening Neighborhoods.
