About Denver Post CharitiesSeason to Share
In 1992, The Denver Post expanded its longtime commitment to the greater Denver metropolitan region and established Denver Post Charities as a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. Funds for Denver Post Charities are mainly raised through the annual Season To Share holiday campaign.
The McCormick Foundation matches all donations to Denver Post Charities at fifty cents on the dollar. The Denver Post and the Foundation pay all campaign and administrative expenses ensuring that one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations. These agencies help move people out of poverty with programs that provide meals for those who are hungry, shelter for those who are homeless, healthcare for uninsured/underinsured patients, education programs for disadvantaged children, and literacy services for low-income adults.
All organizations undergo a thorough screening during the grant application process to ensure that only high-quality programs with proven results receive funding.
Since inception, more than $55 million in grants has been distributed through Denver Post Charities and Season To Share improving the lives of those in need and transforming the community.
