OUR Impact

Funded Projects

In addition to providing grants to nonprofit organizations, the Foundation funds art and community projects, events, and activities for residents of Riverfront Park. The Foundation also has funded research programs that look at recreational and environmental needs within the Riverfront Park neighborhood and surrounding downtown Denver locations (e.g. playgrounds). 

Here are a few of the projects we’ve funded to date.
