  • Primarily address needs identified by low-income earners, women, people of color, immigrants, disenfranchised youth, or people who are LGBTQ
  • Build power on multiple issues by engaging communities in nonpartisan democratic and legislative processes
  • Show a deep commitment to developing local community leaders who help define the organization’s work
  • Advance state policy, not just local change
  • Show a track record of collaboration with other Colorado organizations, including current GSF grantees

This program does not fund
  • Direct service providers or organizations that don’t engage in advocacy
  • National groups without demonstrated local leadership and a long-term commitment to Colorado
  • Single- or narrow-issue organizations that support causes defined by internal leadership rather than underrepresented communities
