Denver Post Season To Share is merging into Denver Post Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund. Season To Share will continue as a campaign of Denver Post Charities. This merged fund will implement a philanthropic strategy focused on programs with strong measurable outcomes with the overall mission to alleviating poverty by helping low-income children, youth and families be successful and achieve self-sufficiency.

- Child/Youth Education: to help children and youth, ages 9 to 24, achieve academic success, complete high school, and enter post-secondary education programs.
- Hunger: to support the hunger relief infrastructure, and community programs with case-managed services that lead clients to self-sufficiency.
- Housing: to keep individuals and families at risk of homelessness in stable housing; to provide housing with support services for homeless individuals and families.

- Health and Wellness: to support programs that promote healthy living practices and provide access to health care service to low-income individuals.
