Foundation Mission and Focus Areas
The Denver Post Community Foundation strives to fulfill Denver Post Community’s mission of improving and enriching the lives of those in our community by raising and distributing money primarily to Denver metro area nonprofits in the areas of arts and culture; children and youth; education and literacy; and the provision of human services.
The Denver Post Community Foundation supports 501c3 nonprofit organizations with grants in the following areas:
- ARTS & CULTURE
Arts and cultural activities inspire us and enrich our lives. We support many of our community’s outstanding arts organizations that make performances, exhibitions and other cultural experiences meaningful and available to a wide range of people, including programs and projects targeted at schools, through free or reduced admission to artistic and cultural activities and other special arts and cultural activities.
- CHILDREN & YOUTH
Children deserve a chance to lead healthy, happy and productive lives. We strive to ensure that young people in our community have every opportunity to succeed through effective youth development programs both in and out of school.
- EDUCATION & LITERACY
Knowledge and the ability to read are essential ingredients for building a better society. Supporting programs that provide educational opportunities and literacy instruction is a key part of our mission to better the lives of those in need.
- HUMAN SERVICES
The care and provision of basic services to those in need is an important element of Denver Post Community’s mission. These grants support organizations that provide a variety of assistance that meet the basic needs of people who need it the most.
