As the community foundation serving Jefferson County, Colorado, 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.
Within each impact area below, we organize our Jeffco community building and grants by portfolios. These portfolios allow us to bundle projects that are mapping to a similar outcome so that we can measure success.
Our community impact team uses a variety of grantmaking including directed/invited grant proposals, designed grant initiatives, and open/competitive grants.
After careful analysis of the funding landscape in Colorado and in particular, the funding gaps in Jefferson County, Colorado, we have selected the following opportunities and areas of need in Jeffco to focus our efforts. In the very near future, we will begin developing opportunities and portfolios within each of these impact areas.Strategic Plan
