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.
We’re 25! Follow us throughout the year as we celebrate our achievements in improving health and wellbeing across Colorado. As part of our anniversary, we will be announcing some special gifts throughout the year in recognition of the hard work we’ve all done together to make Colorado a place where every child experiences love, stability, support, opportunity, and health!

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.
