The Colorado Trust 2008 Annual Report


The Colorado Trust is dedicated to achieving access to health for all Coloradans by 2018.

With our singularly focused vision, we are committed to working closely with many people across the state to see comprehensive, meaningful change that will mean:

  • Every child will have a real opportunity to grow up healthy
  • Colorado will have a healthy population that contributes to the prosperity of the state
  • Affordable health care coverage will be available to all families and individuals
  • Accessible, quality care will be the norm
  • The health care system will deliver care that is responsive to the needs of all Coloradans.


When the nonprofit PSL Health Care Corporation was sold to a for-profit organization in 1985, the proceeds of the sale were used to create a foundation dedicated exclusively to the health of the people of Colorado.

Since that time, The Colorado Trust has worked closely with nonprofit organizations in every county across the state to improve health and well-being, ranging from bringing 9-1-1 emergency medical care to 38 Colorado counties to helping foster the development of the state’s second largest regional transportation district in the Roaring Fork Valley, and much more.

To build on these efforts and address growing needs to expand health coverage and improve and expand health care within Colorado, The Trust committed to a 10-year goal to achieve access to health for all Coloradans by 2018.
