What's your vision for Denver?


Fueled by your passion, generosity, and leadership, we’re creating a stronger Metro Denver together.

Community Grants Program Open


Through the Community Grants Program, The Denver Foundation invests in nonprofit organizations and collaborations that are reducing disparities and promoting equity for communities, prioritizing people living in poverty, immigrants and refugees, and people of color in Metro Denver. Through this grantmaking, we supports nonprofits that serve the seven-county Metro Denver area; advance our core values of constituent engagement and racial equity; and align with our priority funding areas of climate and environment, economic opportunity, education, housing, and transportation. Applications for the fall cycle are due August 1. 

Contribute to The Fund for Denver


The Community Grants Program is fueled by The Fund for Denver, our permanent endowment. Generous people like you have built The Fund for Denver over generations, giving to secure a better future for everyone in Metro Denver. Let’s keep it going.

Why We Give:

Women of Color Making a Difference (WOCMAD)


Creating Safe and Bold Space for Women to Give Collectively

Women of Color Making a Difference was formed in 2020, enlisting 11 Black women as members. WOCMAD was started after its organizer, Sandra Roberts-Taylor, approached The Denver Foundation to find out how to get involved with an existing circle at the foundation, which led to her starting her own giving circle with friends. WOCMAD hopes to inspire other similar groups to sprout up and invest in the community. “It’s definitely gratifying to know that somewhere down the road, we are going to make a difference,” says Roberts-Taylor.
