The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado is a trusted, local platform serving local communities through philanthropy.

We enable people to give more effectively and to think strategically and creatively about the future of our communities. By acting as the convener for important conversations, we call upon our dynamic network of relationships with donors, nonprofits, and community leaders that allows us to gather the right group to address community endeavors.
