The mission of the Caring for Colorado Foundation is to create equity in health, well-being and opportunity for Colorado’s children and families. The core values of Caring for Colorado are integrity, inclusion and commitment. Created in 1998 from the proceeds of the sale of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado, Caring for Colorado works with communities to catalyze and accelerate change to improve the lives and health of Colorado’s children, youth and families. Building on an exceptional reputation and programmatic investments surpassing $100 million, Caring for Colorado is poised to make significant investments to address root causes, promote prevention, improve systems and advance policy change so that Colorado’s children and families can thrive. The capacity of the 501(c)(4) Caring for Colorado Foundation has been expanded over the last year through the creation of the Centennial Fund, a related 501(c)(3) organization that was created with an endowment gift from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
