Who We Are
The Denver Foundation is the largest and most experienced community foundation in the Rocky Mountain West. For nearly 100 years, people in Metro Denver and across Colorado have trusted The Denver Foundation to steward charitable funds to meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s opportunities. In partnership with generous donors and community partners, we lead a community-wide effort to build a better future for everyone.
What We Do
As a tax-exempt, nonprofit, philanthropic organization, The Denver Foundation stewards more than 1,000 funds established by generous donors. In partnership with the Foundation, our donors make gifts to organizations throughout the seven-county Metro Denver region, across Colorado, and beyond.
The Denver Foundation stewards a permanent endowment — The Fund for Denver — made up of charitable gifts from generations of generous people who care about Metro Denver. We invest these gifts for financial growth and use that income to fund our community impact grantmaking and programs.
