The Colorado Psychiatric Foundation (CPF) is pleased to announce that, thanks to your generosity, the CPF board voted to donate to six local organizations in 2023:


  • Colorado Coalition for the Homeless to assist individuals without housing
  • The Colorado Physician Health Program to support the health and well-being of physicians in Colorado
  • Family Promise to assist families without housing 
  • Rainbow Alley (at The Center on Colfax) to support LGBTQ+ youth by providing a safe, affirming environment
  • REACH (Respecting Ethnic and Cultural Heritage) to further multicultural education that fosters inclusivity
  • Denver Mile High Rotary Foundation to address youth mental health needs, particularly for underserved youth in refugee and/or minority communities

Previous Past Projects Include:

  • Providing funding for honorariums to authors published in the Mental Health Stories Project
