Grant Types

Foundation resources are invested in organizations contributing to Denver’s art and cultural community through three grant-making strategies:

Operating Support

A priority of the Foundation is to provide unrestricted operating grants to arts organizations committed to excellence, innovation, and sustainability.

Capacity-Building Grants

The Foundation occasionally makes target grants for such areas as leadership, governance, management systems, strategic planning, and evaluation.

Capital Projects

Grants for capital projects are generally reserved for organizations with which the Foundation has an established relationship.
