Community First Foundation has been connecting donors and innovative Colorado nonprofits since 1975. As the community foundation serving Jefferson County, we are committed to activating ideas, people and resources so that all Jeffco communities have the opportunity to thrive. We help donors with philanthropic planning, support nonprofits with grants and resources, and together, build resilient and connected communities.
We believe it is hard to thrive when you cannot meet your most essential needs and that when our neighbors are economically secure, everyone benefits. We believe that resilient and connected neighborhoods are the backbone of a strong community, and that civil discourse and social justice is key to strengthening this place we call home.
We are passionate, we are hungry, and we love tough problems and new challenges. We set big goals that require the long view, but we know that our work today is the first step toward a better tomorrow. Let’s dream big and together, make good possible!
However you define family – from fur-babies to grandkids to the families we choose - the desire to make our world a better place and leave a lasting impact inspires us all. No matter where you are in your journey as a philanthropist – even if it is only a dream right now! – we invite you to join us and learn how philanthropy has evolved and what that means for you and the people, places and things you love.
In order to protect our community members and employees, and in alignment with recommendations from the CDC, Community First Foundation has decided to close our meeting space and cancel meetings.
