Philanthropy Colorado's Response

Phianthropy Colorado has been working to connect funders across the state and ensure the sector has the most up-to-date information about nonprofit needs, relief funds and resources. We're holding frequent calls and webinars designed to bring our members together to share their approaches to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check out program calendar for upcoming virtual convenings and/or contact us with your specific questions about how philanthropy can respond to the crisis.

You can read a summary here of how Colorado nonprofits responded to our survey asking them to identify urgent needs and the overall impact of COVID-19 on their organizations and communities. The findings were included in this April 12 article in the Colorado Sun. 

We're also maintaining an inventory for our members of grants made and strategies implemented in response to the crisis. Members can log in to provide their information. 

Philanthropy Colorado has been working with the offices of Governor Jared Polis to provide assistance and connections on behalf of a statewide Colorado COVID Relief Fund.
