Supporting local nonprofits every year.

Elevations Foundation supports our Colorado communities by awarding community grants annually to area nonprofit organizations. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are focusing community grant support on a number of nonprofits in our mental health and early childhood development portfolios. We will not have an open application period for 2020. Learn more about our ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts.

Areas of funding.

Elevations Foundation awards grants to local nonprofits working in the following fields:

  • Early childhood development

Elevations Foundation reviews and updates its funding priorities every two years, using local community research to focus our funding in areas where there are significant gaps in services.
