Join the Challenge: All donations made to the Core Mission Fund will be matched!


For more than 160 years, Denver Health has played a critical role as Denver’s essential safety-net hospital, providing care to the Denver community regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. But recently, the health system has experienced unprecedented financial challenges, largely due to the increasing cost of providing care to our community’s most vulnerable residents.

Recognizing how important Denver Health is to the health care landscape, Kaiser Permanente Community Health Fund at The Denver Foundation has made a $10 million commitment to assist Denver Health with providing vital health care services for the community, including continued access to primary and specialty care for those who do not have the means to pay.

Part of this commitment is a $5 million matching donation. All donations made to the Denver Health Foundation Core Mission Fund will qualify for the match.
