DPCF — Denver Post Community Foundation

The mission of Denver Post Community is to improve and enrich the quality of life in our community through support of programs that benefit children and youth; arts and culture; education and literacy; and the provision of basic human services.

Denver Post Community accomplishes this mission through the implementation of various community giving programs detailed throughout this site, including:

  • Denver Post Charities and Denver Post Season To Share, both McCormick Foundation Funds
  • Sponsorships
  • Signature Events
  • ACTS (Assisting the Community Through Service)
  • Employee Volunteer Program
    We are proud to serve hundreds of metro-Denver nonprofit organizations, programs and events. Last year, we contributed over $12,000,000 in value – through grants, corporate contributions, volunteer efforts and in-kind advertising – to support the efforts of more than 250 outstanding charitable agencies and events in our community.

We are grateful to our partners for the amazing work they do in our community. Together we can make a difference.

Youth on Record (formerly flobots.org)

Founded in Denver in March of 2008 as Flobots.org, Youth on Record uses music and the arts as inspiration — equipping young people with tools to make a difference in themselves, their communities and their world.

Youth on Record works to create positive social change by harnessing the power of music and those who love it. They view music as a tool for therapy, community building, leadership development and action.
