Belonging Colorado

We’re helping to build a Colorado where everyone belongs.

Belonging Colorado, a special fund of The Denver Foundation, is a bold, new effort to bring people together in new ways, grow resilience in our state, and expand Coloradans’ sense of who belongs. We are seeking to invest in good ideas for building connections across lines of difference—racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, political affiliation, age, and more. Our state is not immune to the trends of social division and disconnection affecting our nation.

At a time of intense challenges—social, economic, and environmental—it is more essential than ever that Coloradoans work effectively across differences to bridge divides and support the long-term health, resilience, and well-being of our state. Will you join us?

About the program

  • Belonging Colorado provides training and technical assistance through the Greater Good Science Center to those who want to build their skills and learn more about how to incorporate bridge-building into their communities and professional lives.
  • We are investing in community efforts to advance innovative local programs and approaches to building connections across lines of difference. Our Request for Letter of Intent will be available June 11, with applications due July 31.
  • We are learning about where Coloradans feel like they do – and don’t – belong through the Colorado Belonging Barometer conducted by the Colorado Health Institute.
  • We are interested in supporting social entrepreneurs with unique ideas on how to advance belonging in our state. Stay tuned for future opportunities!
