Local Foundations Provide Support to Expand CSPH Partnerships and Outreach

Local Colorado foundations are supporting improved community health with a new, collaboratively funded grant to the Colorado School of Public Health.

The Caring for Colorado Foundation, Colorado Health Foundation, Colorado Trust and Rose Community Foundation collaborated to donate $1.5 million dollars to support further development of the School’s many community partnerships.

"Our ongoing partnership with the local health foundations with this new investment enables us to further develop the many ways we reach out to improve the health of Colorado communities," states David Goff, Jr., MD, PhD Dean of the Colorado School of Public Health.

The grant will provide support to accelerate the School's move to online education for rural health professionals, build community health improvement capacity for both public health and health care organizations, and organize public forums to discuss pressing public issues. 

"The Colorado School of Public Health is an important partner in training Colorado’s public health work force and it represents a model of academic collaboration among three outstanding Colorado universities. The School of Public Health’s efforts are well worth this investment,” says Chris Wiant, MPH, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caring for Colorado Foundation.

The school plans to continue to report on progress in these activities via this website.
