About the Organization

At the Foundation, we believe that keeping equity at the heart of our work will lead us to better health. That starts from within, including intentional application of diversity, equity, and inclusion practices that guide how we operate and work in communities across Colorado. For example, our cornerstones are designed to help ensure that:

  • We serve Coloradans who have low income and/or have historically had less power or privilege.
  • We do everything with the intent of creating health equity.
  • We are informed by the community and those we exist to serve.
