We are so grateful to our funding partners who support the important work we are doing to elevate and empower our ECE professionals.

Denver, CO

— ROSE Community Foundation

Our work is rooted in history. Rose Community Foundation was created in 1995 with the assets from the sale of Rose Medical Center, a hospital created by Denver’s Jewish community in 1949. Today, we operate entirely independently from the hospital, but our work remains grounded in the priorities that guided the hospital’s work: a tradition of philanthropy, a commitment to serving the entire community and high standards of excellence.

From the beginning, the Foundation focused on areas where Jay and Rose saw the greatest need: efforts to combat discrimination and honor diversity, self-sufficiency through a hand up not a hand out, health, education, and efforts that helped people with disabilities live a full and healthy life.
