Health & Mental Health

Since our founding in 1925, helping communities meet the physical and behavioral health care needs of residents has been part of the work of The Denver Foundation.

The Foundation's Community Grants program has aligned its priorities for health-related grant applicants with findings from our recent Listening campaign which include: expanding access to health care or improving the health of lower income people and those who are uninsured or underinsured; and promoting mental and physical health through education, prevention, and early intervention.

The Denver Foundation was a long-time supporter of Advancing Colorado's Mental Health Care through a partnership with many local funders. This effort resulted in extensive research about best practices in mental health care.Through generous contributions to our Community Endowment, donors over the course of the Foundation's history have provided the necessary resources for health related grants from the Foundation's Community Grants Program. And donors have given millions of dollars, in the form of grants, through their own funds to help advance the quality and availability of health care with grants to hospitals, health care organizations, community clinics, and more.
