2020 Annual Report

2020 was a transformative year for us as a foundation, as a state and as a country – it laid bare not only our vulnerabilities, but also our resilience. Through it all, our nonprofit partners rose to the occasion by increasing supports and working even harder for Colorado’s children, youth and families. Caring for Colorado endeavored to help by supporting our nonprofit partners with additional funding and flexible resources.

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.
