Grantmaking - The Colorado Trust


The Colorado Trust's strategic grantmaking supports the development of a coordinated system of policies, programs and services that expand health coverage, and improve and expand health care.

In response to an RFP or an individual invitation issued by The Trust, the following types of organizations are eligible to apply for grants:

  • Nonprofit organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are classified as "not a private foundation" under Section 509(a)
  • Independent sponsored projects of a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization acting as a fiscal sponsor
  • Government and public agencies.

The Trust issues Requests for Proposals (RFP) and welcomes responses from nonprofit organizations and governmental entities across Colorado. When a competitive funding opportunity is available, a detailed RFP with related instructions and specific application deadlines is posted to our website. SIGN UP to be automatically notified by email of future funding opportunities.

The Trust also asks organizations that are focused on strategies specific to achieving access to health to submit individual, non-competitive proposals. Please note that The Trust does not accept unsolicited requests for funding.
