As Colorado's oldest and largest community foundation The Denver Foundation helps people give back to Metro Denver in ways that are meaningful -- to them and to the community. We do this in three ways: 1) We steward the Community Endowment to meet the changing needs of the community now and for generations to come. The Community Endowment is made up of gifts from thousands of donors over the course of the Foundation's history. Earnings from the endowment help local nonprofits through the Community Grants Program, Technical Assistance Grants, the Inclusiveness Project, and the Strengthening Neighborhoods Program. 2) The Foundation currently assists Metro Denver individuals, families, and businesses accomplish their charitable goals by helping them design personalized charitable giving strategies and establishing customized, flexible donor funds (mini foundations). We currently manage more than 800 charitable funds giving donors the power of a private foundation without the administrative burdens. The Foundation offers expertise and experience in family philanthropic planning, provided free of charge or obligation. 3) We work with community and philanthropic leaders to address the core challenges that face Metro Denver.
