Community First Foundation has been connecting donors and innovative Colorado nonprofits since 1975. As the community foundation serving Jefferson County, we are committed to connecting ideas, people and nonprofits so that all Jeffco communities have the opportunity to thrive. We help donors with philanthropic planning, support nonprofits with grants and resources, and together, build resilient and connected communities.
We believe it is hard to thrive when you cannot meet your most essential needs and that when our neighbors are economically secure, everyone benefits. We believe that resilient and connected neighborhoods are the backbone of a strong community, and that civil discourse and social justice is key to strengthening this place we call home.
We are passionate, we are hungry, and we love tough problems and new challenges. We set big goals that require the long view, but we know that our work today is the first step toward a better tomorrow. Let’s dream big and together, make good possible!
Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, Dec. 7. Mark your calendar for Colorado's largest single day of giving, and sign up for text reminders.
The Helping Each Other Thrive grant opportunity aims to help identify partners, engage donors, increase community engagement in neighborhoods and inform local needs and the Foundation’s future work. Awards will be announced in November.
