Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations and agencies to address behavioral health inequities faced by underserved youth. Funding may be requested for the creation of new programs or the expansion of existing programs. The purpose of funding is to support youth of color and LGBTQ youth as they explore and grow their resiliency through identity, agency, and belonging.

The Foundation is committed to addressing health equity. For this funding opportunity, the Foundation will support programs working with youth of color and LGBTQ youth in safe, supportive, and culturally responsive environments, because these groups experience significant behavioral health inequities. The Foundation knows that programs working in diverse communities will have diverse participants beyond preferred groups and age span. The Foundation's interest is in supporting programs that are designed to take into account the specific cultural dynamics of priority groups and that those groups make up at least 50% of program participants.

Proposed programs and/or projects must reflect the Foundation’s cornerstones:

  • The Foundation serves Coloradans who have less power, privilege, and income, and prioritizes Coloradans of color.
  • The Foundation does everything with the intent of creating health equity.
  • The Foundation is informed by the community and those it exists to serve. 

An array of youth programming will be considered, such as (but not limited to):

  • Civic engagement
  • Poetry and the arts
  • Traditional cultural practice
  • Outdoor adventure
  • Apprenticeship or job skill training
  • Community service
