At the Foundation, we believe that keeping equity at the heart of our work will lead us to better health.

- We serve Coloradans who have less power, privilege, and income, and prioritize Coloradans of color.
- We do everything with the intent of creating health equity.
- We are informed by the community and those we exist to serve.
Ideal candidates will connect with our mission and cornerstones, work well in ambiguity and managing change, and remain grounded in the day-to-day responsibilities. An understanding of the communities we serve, including Coloradans living on low income, communities of color and/or and neighborhoods or regions that face equity issues (experience may be professional in nature or personal) is a plus.
