The Colorado Trust believes that its service to the people of Colorado would not be possible without careful stewardship of its resources, as well as the utmost transparency of its funding initiatives. That’s why every year, The Trust publishes an annual report that includes grantmaking accomplishments, other highlights and financial information.

While the format of our annual report has changed over the years, the core information remains the same. The previous decade’s worth of annual reports are available for download below. For more information, please visit our Financials page or search our grants database.
