Since 1975, the Community First Foundation has been helping generous donors and innovative nonprofits come together to improve the quality of life and create positive change in Jefferson County, the Denver metropolitan area and beyond. We serve as a connector, partner, collaborator and resource to fuel the power of community for the greater good. The Foundation uses its energy, leadership and trusted stewardship of financial resources to energize giving across our state, strengthen nonprofits, support donors and find new ways to address community needs.
The Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis is an endowment partner with the Community First Foundation with its efforts to help Colorado nonprofits build their endowments. These long-term funds are invested for the future needs of an organization so the good they do can keep going. Endowments also provide a steady revenue source, allow donors to leave a legacy and convey stability, fiscal responsibility and prudent planning.
The Institute also participates in the annual Colorado Gives Day program of the Community First Foundation to promote a statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Colorado Gives Day 2018 raised $35.1 million for 2,481 Colorado nonprofits in 24 hours. Since its inception in 2010 the event has raised more than $217 million to support local communities. Join the movement!
