Adolph Coors Foundation
The Foundation, named for the son of the founder of Coors Brewing Company, is a private Foundation that supports nonprofits maintaining the quality of life in Colorado. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking in four areas: human services, youth, education, and community. Human services grants help people be independent and self-supporting. Of particular interest are programs and projects that address individual self-sufficiency and responsibility, job skills training and assistance, financial management and responsibility, and self-reliance, especially for seniors and families. Youth grants emphasize character and leadership development. The Foundation believes that most youth have the potential to be successful given opportunity, knowledge, and support. Top priority is given to one-on-one mentoring programs, year-round programming, leadership opportunities, and character building and risk taking. Education grants support programs that arenít part of the public schools, especially after-school programs with an emphasis on literacy, financial literacy, free enterprise, and science and technology. Community grants support programs that encourage volunteerism and philanthropy. The Foundation will consider giving capital support for civic institutions that serve an entire region. The Foundation does not accept proposals sent by fax or e-mail. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
