Support Our Leading Colorado Scholarship Fund

The Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation’s Leading Colorado Scholarship Fund opens doors for remarkable civic leaders who otherwise would not be able to participate in the Leadership Foundation’s transformational programs. When we bring people with diverse viewpoints and backgrounds to the table, our community becomes more inclusive and collaborative, and we make Colorado better for all.

Because of leaders like you, we have been able to steadily increase our scholarship support for worthy candidates over the past several years. Generous donors and alumni know the value of a strong, vibrant, inclusive community, and they want to “pay it forward.” Every dollar you contribute goes exclusively to scholarships—and one more emerging leader joins with us to build a more resilient and prosperous community here.

The Leading Colorado Scholarship Fund is Colorado’s Civic DNA™ in action—creating a more inclusive, collaborative community of leadership, with a deeper sense of responsibility for making Colorado better for all.


“The Leadership Foundation helps perpetuate the community that makes Denver so unique. Getting the future leaders of the community in a room to learn from each other, as well as outside experts, brings together the disparate voices and personal networks in a way that has propelled this region forward unlike any other. Investing in these leaders is an investment in the community and their voices so we can all grow and thrive.”

“I think everyone should do a program of the Leadership Foundation … It is especially important for small business owners and nonprofit leaders, where finances are a little more tight. Often, we are cocooned in our own industry or roles at our job. We forget there is a bigger picture. Leadership Denver helped open my eyes to that and allowed me to connect with companies, people and causes that I may not have ever even had access to. This makes me a more well-rounded person, better leader and community and cause advocate.
