Greenlee Family Foundation, Mission          Greenlee Family Foundation
                    

 

Our mission is to encourage, preserve and promote the well-being, education, welfare and enlightenment of our fellow citizens by investing in creative people and ideas. We accomplish this by:

  • providing opportunities for those of limited or modest means.
  • educating, serving and collaborating with others who share similar philanthropic goals.
  • seeking solutions that can have a long-term impact while addressing current social issues, specific problems, or unique challenges in our community.
  • supporting and encouraging organizations that demonstrate a commitment to life-long and experiential learning.

We give geographic preference to Colorado charities, particularly Metro Denver, Boulder and Broomfield counties.

Our grantmaking philosophy focuses attention on smaller, grassroots, and local organizations whose mission reflects our grantmaking intent. Despite our limited financial resources, we strongly believe that our grantmaking can have an impact. We prefer to partner with agencies that use their resources wisely, invest time and money in developing good business practices, train and support their boards of directors and volunteers as ambassadors of their mission, and stay focused on their vision. To that end, we invest significant time in the community offering direct services to nonprofits, primarily in the areas of board and resource development.
