Philanthropy Through 5T's

Getting involved through individual or collaborative participation is about making community investments and owning community outcomes.

The Power of Participation and Philanthropy to Create Positive Change

Ownership is rooted in what we value. But more importantly, it is aligning
our history, pride, and community knowledge to preserve, strengthen and build community assets and resources. Doing so requires investing in our Five Ts - Time, Talent, Treasure, Testimony, and (Social) Ties. Through participation and philanthropy, our shared investments can create the change we want to see. 


"Philanthropy is not a transaction. In order for change to happen, there needs to be engagement and dialogue, which helps bring a strategic focus on how we can make a collective impact. The Black community has a long history of philanthropy that comes from resilience and optimism - because you can't have one without the other."

~ Karen McNeil-Miller - President & CEO, Colorado Health Foundation
