Community Grants Program

We invest in your vision.

The Denver Foundation and our donors are honored to support a diversity of organizations and community groups who are working to foster a more just, healthy, and vibrant Metro Denver area and beyond.

Through the Community Grants Program, the Foundation invests in resident groups and nonprofit organizations that are reducing disparities and promoting equity for communities, prioritizing people living in poverty, immigrants and refugees, and people of color.

We also offer a wide variety of issue-focused grant opportunities to advance your cause and create positive change.
