Children and Youth
All children should have the chance to succeed in life and opportunities to help them reach their full potential by being on track for success in the classroom and in life. This is why we fund children’s charities in Metro Denver.
Funding will focus mainly on out-of-school time programs that support the development of children and youth in the community, ages 5 – 18. Programs must be evidence-based and demonstrate positive outcomes in academic achievement and/or social and emotional development and show ongoing relationships with children/ youth beyond a one-time encounter. Programs must also focus on youth with barriers to success, serving at least 60% who qualify for free and reduced lunch or other low-income indicator.
