Community grants for important work in your backyard.

Elevations Foundation is proud to support the communities we serve by providing community grants to local non-profit organizations. This community grant program has provided $430,000 since its inception.

Elevations Foundation’s community grants initiative focuses on:

Sustainability & Environmental Education
We support efforts that educate and engage the public on sustainability and the environment.

Early Childhood Development
We seek to close the achievement gap by supporting efforts to improve early childhood development.

Mental Health
We seek to enhance our community’s health and wellness by supporting efforts to improve access to mental health care. The Foundation reviews and updates its funding priorities every two year, using community experts to focus our resources in areas where there are significant gaps in services.

How to Apply:

Between July 20, 2020 to August 28, 2020, Elevations Foundation will accept proposals from local community-based organizations working in the fields of: mental health, early childhood development and sustainability/environmental education. Applying organizations should be based in and/or providing services to the following counties: Adams, Boulder Broomfield, Denver, Jefferson, Larimer, Weld.

Community grant awards are typically up to $5,000 in value. While not a firm requirement, we generally fund smaller organizations with budgets of under $1 million.

The application is open to all qualified 501(c)3 organizations; no Letter of Intent is required. Our short-form online application asks for basic organization information, a description of the grant purpose, expected results and plans for community visibility. Additional space is provided to upload supporting documents.
