Support Social Justice
Grassroots work means that we ALL have to participate. Just as our grantees boldly organize for change, we as donor activists must boldly give for change. Without money, Chinook cannot fund its incredible grantee organizations or the myriad of social justice leadership and training opportunities it provides for activists, volunteers and donors. Without resources, Chinook cannot draw together the young, old and in-the-middle; people of ALL colors, not just white; gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, transgender, queer communities; those without much, with means, and in-between; the able-bodied and differently-abled - to work on establishing respect, parity and justice for ALL throughout Colorado. The more we contribute, the greater Chinook’s reach can encompass.

Gifts of all kinds matter to us!
Access for people with disabilities. Safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered youth in schools. Rights for all immigrants. Fair wages and safe workplaces for all workers, regardless of race, gender or immigration status. Chinook Fund grantees are dealing with the most critical issues of the day, in some of the most vulnerable communities in our city.
Our grantees rely on the support of Chinook Fund – and Chinook Fund relies on you, our community of donors. All of the money that we raise each year comes from individual donors, most of whom give us $250 a year or less. Your gift – whether it is $20 or $20,000 – makes an impact, and your support is key to ensuring the success of our grantees.
