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

Denver Health Foundation helps donors with diverse interests make a comprehensive impact on the health, social and economic well-being of the greater Denver area by supporting the exceptional care provided by Denver Health.

For more than 160 years, Denver Health has been at the center of health innovation, changing with the city as its challenges become more complex and its solutions more interrelated. Denver Health goes far beyond being a proud provider of emergency services for all and care for those with limited resources—it’s also a key community player in preventive care, children’s early care and learning, the opioid crisis and addressing the social determinants of health.

Since government funding for care hardly keeps pace with the clinical and social innovations needed for our growing city, Denver Health Foundation donors make this groundbreaking work possible. Professional staff at Denver Health Foundation work with donors on opportunities to make a difference in areas such as innovation in health care delivery, school-based health clinics for children, key social and community supports and economic development through workforce development, to name a few.

The Denver Health Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that operates separately from Denver Health and Hospital Authority and has its own governing structure, board of directors and by-laws. Founded in 1988, Denver Health Foundation raises private funds that support Denver Health and Hospital Authority in its role to sustain and advance the health and well-being of Denver, Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region.

Join us to become the foundation of Denver’s health. Together, we are the springboard for the health and well-being of everyone in Denver. Contact Denver Health Foundation at 303-602-2971.
