This spring, Bonfils-Stanton Foundation is pleased to announce the distribution of $1,251,125 in new grant awards. These grants are a testament to our deepening partnership with Denver’s arts and culture organizations, aimed at fostering diversity and vibrancy within our community. This cycle introduces new members to our ecosystem of support, including the Birdseed Collective, known for their dynamic community engagement and artistic initiatives.

Significant investments have been made to enable Su Teatro and Access Gallery to purchase their own facilities—a milestone achievement for both. This move will expand Su Teatro's capacity and enhance its educational offerings. Previously limited by space, they are now set to flourish in their new location within the dynamic Santa Fe Arts District, further solidifying our commitment to our local neighbors.

We have also reinforced our support for Curious Theater by allocating $60,000 for general operations, recognizing their vital role and ongoing impact in our arts community. Curious Theater continues to be a cornerstone of cultural enrichment in Denver.

These grants highlight our commitment to supporting organizations that not only excel in their respective fields but also contribute significantly to the cultural and sustainable development of our community. We are continually thankful for being invited to support their efforts and look forward to the positive impacts these investments will have in our community.
