Creating Equity
in Health 

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.

New Grant Opportunity

As part of our COVID Relief and Recovery efforts, the School-Age Engagement and Care grant opportunity will award grants of up to $25,000 to increase support for children and youth (k-12) who are experiencing barriers to returning to a full-time, in-person school environment.

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.
