What We Do

The Colorado Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization that engages through grantmaking, public policy and advocacy, private sector engagement, strategic communications, evaluation for learning and assessment and by operating primary care residency training programs. Our partners include nonprofits, health care leaders, policy makers, educators and the private sector.

Making Colorado the healthiest state in the nation is our vision — one that requires dedication and hard work with partners across Colorado. In 2014, the Foundation announced changes to our long-term goals, strategies, funding approach and evaluation model. Read more about the changes.

Our Priorities 
To achieve our vision we focus on three community outcome areas: Healthy Living, Health Coverage and Health Care to ensure a future state where our communities promote health and our health care systems deliver excellent, affordable care to Coloradans who both have and desire good health. Learn more about our work.

While making Colorado the healthiest state in the nation is a lofty goal, we remain steadfast. But we can’t do it alone. Will you join us on this journey?
