Committed to broadening economic opportunity for its community as one of the three core focus areas for its community endowment, The Denver Foundation has supported a range of innovative wealth building programs. It has provided grants for the Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Exchange to provide training to nonprofits developing social enterprise ventures, grants to the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union Urban Cooperative Development Center and the Rocky Mountain Employee Ownership Center to support the creation of worker-owned businesses, as well as a grant to the Anschutz Medical Campus Community Campus Partnership to ensure that the expansion of the medical campus spurs inclusive economic and workforce development. The foundation has also been active in growing the local food system through grants to organizations like Veterans to Farmers,which trains veterans on how to launch their own urban agriculture businesses, and Re:Vision’s Re:Farm Denver program, which is helping 300 low-income families grow food from their yards and is launching a cooperative that will allow these families to sell surplus food and generate income.
