Community First Foundation has been connecting donors and innovative Colorado nonprofits since 1975. We help donors with philanthropic planning, support nonprofits with grants and endowments, and together, build resilient and connected communities. Our work is rooted in radical listening and a commitment to equity and inclusion. Our mission is to connect ideas, people and nonprofits so that Jefferson County is thriving. We also created and manage Colorado Gives Day and that platform it runs on!
We make good happen in three ways.
