Strategic Investment Grants

Our Strategic Investment Grants provide nearly $6.5 million in funding across 100 high-performing organizations in Metro Denver that are implementing strategies directly aligned with our four Community Impact Goals, and are serving geographically and culturally diverse communities.

Our community’s challenges are bigger than any one organization can solve alone.

We know that it takes multiple organizations working together to solve the complex issues facing Metro Denver. That is why we invest in organizations that deliver measurable results that change the odds for children, families, and individuals in our community.
