Addressing Anti-Black Systemic Racism

Effective immediately, The Colorado Trust is committing $250,000 in funding within our state to be used towards addressing anti-Black systemic racism.
Program areas for this funding will include:
  • General operating support for organizations advocating to end anti-Black racism in systems, policies and structures
  • COVID-19 personal protective equipment for protesters
  • Education, toolkits and organizing support for peaceful protests
  • Development and implementation of education on systemic racism
  • Free mental health sessions that address racial battle fatigue and trauma
The Colorado Trust is partnering with people and organizations across Colorado to identify the most effective and efficient ways to support implementation of these initiatives. More information will be provided as it becomes available, and all related grants will be listed in The Colorado trust online database. Please contact The Colorado Trust in the interim with any questions.
