The Denver Foundation is honored to support the Colorado COVID Relief Fund, which was established by Governor Jared Polis to address the economic and social impact of the COVID-19 crisis in Colorado. To date, this fund has raised $7.7 million from foundations, businesses, and individuals across the state, including $100,000 from The Denver Foundation.
Like The Denver Foundation’s emergency COVID-19 grantmaking, the Colorado COVID Relief Fund focuses on helping those who are most vulnerable during this time. Resources generated by the fund will be distributed to eligible community-based organizations across Colorado.
