Compelled by our guiding principles and values of philanthropy, justice and nondiscrimination, Rose Community Foundation works to enhance the quality of life of the Greater Denver community through its leadership, resources, traditions and values. Learn more about our mission and vision, and values and guiding principles.

Since our founding in 1995 following the sale of Rose Medical Center, Rose Community Foundation has granted more than $252 million to effective nonprofit organizations and institutions in the seven-county Greater Denver community, primarily in our program areas of Aging, Child and Family Development, Education, Health and Jewish Life. Learn more about the Foundation - At a Glance.

Our impact in the community goes beyond the grants and distributions we make. Our ability to advance change in the community through leading, convening, organizing, partnering, facilitating and focusing – all integrated with our grantmaking – defines the breadth of influence and solutions-focused impact we can have in the communities we serve.

In coordination with our grantmaking, we promote strategic philanthropy in the community as we work with donors to assist them in making thoughtful decisions to achieve their personal philanthropic goals.

And, we seek innovative change in the community by creating and managing initiatives and special programs that further the goals of our grantmaking and the Foundation as a whole, often in collaboration with other funders.
