The Connie Burwell White and William W. White Foundation supports education, the arts and human welfare. We restrict our giving to organizations serving the Denver metro community.
EDUCATION: The White Foundation seeks to improve educational outcomes for students in early childhood through grade 12. Priority will be given to programs that address opportunity gaps by offering quality programming, instruction and support services.
ARTS AND CULTURE: The White Foundation supports organizations that provide access to cultural and arts education for under-resourced populations and institutions that make Denver a vibrant place to live and work.
HUMAN WELFARE: The White Foundation supports programs and organizations that provide nourishment, shelter, care and other services to the Denver metro community.
