YES Grants

20 Years and $1.4+M Later, We're Still Saying YES to Colorado Youth

This year, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of our Youth Endowment Services (YES) Grants program by awarding $200,000 to 43 Colorado nonprofits. Always, but especially now, supporting organizations that focus on empowering children is critical.

Since we began in 2000, Ent YES Grants of more than $1.44 million have helped 186 Colorado nonprofits serve children of all ages in crucial and life-changing ways. Among other support services, YES Grants have helped organizations throughout the state provide shelter for children facing abuse, put food on the table, foster education and literacy programs and much more.
