About Our Grants

Community First Foundation is a nontraditional funder. We typically release at least one open competitive grant that varies in size, strategy and scope from year to year. Our collaborative approach with community partners drives the type and quantity of funding we provide.

The Bright Futures Roadmap Refresh grant aims to:

  • Increase access to early childhood learning
  • Improve quality of early care
  • Support early childhood learning and mental health workforce
  • Improve connection to community and services

  • Increase access to diverse, locally-produced, nutritious, fresh and culturally relevant food 
  • Support Jeffco food pantries, food banks & emergency food providers 
  • Support local food producers
