Purpose and Activities

The mission of the Gates Family Foundation is to invest in projects and organizations which have meaningful impact in Colorado primarily through capital grants and foundation initiatives that enhance the quality of life for those living in, working in, and visiting the state. The foundation seeks to promote excellence, innovation, and self-sufficiency in education, healthy lifestyles, community enrichment, connection to nature, and stewardship of the state's natural inheritance. The foundation's actions will remain consistent with the founders' intentions and the principles of citizenship, entrepreneurship, and free enterprise.


Incorporated in 1946 in CO - The foundation was created because the Gates family believed that voluntary contributions of time, money, and labor were essential to the development of America's social, educational, cultural, and scientific institutions
