Building a Healthier Future for Colorado’s Children and Families
Learn More ›
We stand together with rural, urban and frontier communities to create programs, policies and systems that support the goal that every child in Colorado has love, stability, support and opportunity.
Choose When is an initiative of Caring for Colorado working to remove financial barriers to contraceptive care. By providing grants to safety-net clinics in Colorado, we can off-set the cost of contraceptives for uninsured and underinsured individuals.
Contraception, especially long-acting methods, can cost an individual up to $1,500. For those who are uninsured or underinsured or who require confidential services, this cost presents a very large, often insurmountable, financial barrier.
Our Grantmaking Guiding Principles
CFC’s grantmaking program is rooted in our purpose of achieving equity, health and well-being for Colorado’s children and families. These principles guide our decisions. Our guiding principles are:
We center the health and well-being of all children, youth and their families, and we prioritize resources and attention to children living in families with low incomes, children and youth of color, and children and youth who experience systemic injustice.
We center the voice and perspective of children, youth, families and caregivers and support efforts that seek, integrate, and respond to their insights and solutions.
We center organizations that are rooted in and trusted by the children, youth and communities they serve.
