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 make all contraception methods within financial reach of people throughout Colorado. By providing grants to safety net clinics in Colorado, we can offset the cost of contraceptives for uninsured and underinsured individuals.
Community Voice is Vital to Our Work
We’re hosting 14 virtual sessions focused on hearing from individuals who work with adolescents in the fields of health and well-being. We are especially interested in learning more about the needs of adolescents and their families given the increased rates of depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation and violence among young people in our state.

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.
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.
