The Denver Post Season To Share is the annual holiday fundraising campaign for and a program of The Denver Post Community Foundation. Funds raised support qualified nonprofit organizations with programs that focus on children and youth, health and wellness, homelessness, and hunger. Grants are made possible by the generosity and gifts from Denver Post readers, the general public, corporate donations and partners of Season To Share.
The Denver Post is proud of its long-standing tradition of helping those in need in Metropolitan Denver. Through Season To Share, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults, and families. These qualified nonprofits provide life-changing programs that offer year-round education and mentoring; give access to healthy meals and food supplies; provide stable and affordable housing and offer access to free or low-cost dental and medical services. Thanks to the generosity of donors and readers, and STS partners, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. The Denver Post Season To Share believes in creating communities that thrive. Together, we are building a stronger Denver for tomorrow by investing in our children, adults, and families today.
Originally established in 1992, as a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, more than $69 million was distributed through this partnership to improve the lives of those in need across metro Denver. In July 2017, The Denver Post Community Foundation assumed full responsibility for the management of the program. For the 2017/18 and 2018/19 campaigns, the hometown company, DaVita presented The Denver Post Season To Share and generously provided a 50% match for donations. From those campaigns, $3,495,000 was distributed to agencies working daily to improve the lives of others. The 2019/20 Denver Post Season To Share campaign was presented by Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation, who generously matched donations at 50% and granted $1,400,000 to 55 metro Denver agencies. Grantees are qualified local nonprofit organizations with programs that provide vital support and services to the metro Denver community.
