We will update this page regularly with updates and resources.

We have been closely monitoring the massive impact of this public health crisis on our community, the cultural sector, and the world. On Monday, March 16, we announced emergency funding to assist Denver cultural organizations impacted by COVID-19. 

In terms of the Foundation’s own operations, our physical offices are currently closed. However, our team is working remotely and conducting virtual meetings to ensure the safety of our staff, community members, colleagues, neighbors and partners.

If you’re part of an arts organization – or you’re an artist – please take time to fill out this important survey provided by Americans for the Arts to help keep track of the economic impact the COVID-19 crisis has in the industry.






The Foundation is also determining how we might be able to help the cultural sector during this challenging time, beyond being a vehicle for sharing information and making connections – something we will continue to do not just through communications like this, but through individual calls and emails as well. Stay tuned for further development on this front.

As a community we will get through this together, and the arts especially are a place where we can come together, celebrate, learn – and, yes, if necessary, grieve. Stay safe, and stay in touch with us, and one another.
