Season To Share
The Denver Post is proud of its longstanding tradition of helping those in need in Metro Denver. Deepening the commitment, The Post partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation in 1992 and established The Denver Post Season To Share, a McCormick Foundation Fund. Through The Denver Post Season To Share, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults and families. Season To Share focuses on alleviating poverty by funding nonprofit agencies in four guideline areas: Child/Youth Education; Hunger; Homelessness; and Health/Wellness. All funds raised are generously matched at 50% by the McCormick Foundation and 100% of each donation plus the match are distributed to deserving nonprofits in the Metro Denver area. These qualified nonprofits provide life-changing programs that offer year-round education and mentoring; give access to healthy meals and food supplies; provide stable and affordable housing, and offer access to free or low-cost dental and medical services.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and readers, and the 50% match from the McCormick Foundation, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. Since inception, 2,060 grants totaling more than $69,000,000 have been invested. The Denver Post Season To Share believes in creating communities that thrive. Together, we are building a stronger Denver for tomorrow by investing in children, adults and families today.
Thank you for making a difference! Thanks to the generous support of our community, more than $2,300,000 will be distributed this year through The Denver Post Season To Share, A McCormick Foundation Fund. More than $1,533,600 was raised thanks to the generosity of over 4,500 donors. The McCormick Foundation matched all gifts at 50% for an additional $766,800. With The Denver Post and the McCormick Foundation paying all expenses, 100% of every donation, plus the match, will go directly to local charities in July.
