We make grants in Colorado in four critical areas:
LGBT advocacy and services: our core mission, so no Coloradan will be left behind.
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education: cultivates critical-thinking skills for the individual and long-term competitiveness for our state’s population.
Civic engagement and communications: so all Coloradans have a say in our state’s future.
Public broadcasting: so our state’s people are more and better informed.
Explore, research, and determine where strategic investments can improve the lives of Coloradans.
Prioritize philanthropic giving in innovative efforts, measure results, refine strategy, give again.
Partner with allied foundations and individuals to fund together and increase our collective impact.
