ADL Receives Capacity Building Grant Following Election From Rose Community Foundation

  • January 4, 2017


In the uncertain circumstances following the November election, Rose Community Foundation took the unusual step of awarding small, unsolicited grants to past or existing grantees that experienced a real and immediate increased demand for services in the days following the election. The grants of $10,000 each were designed to help organizations that serve populations that now feel or will become more vulnerable based on the incoming administration’s stated policy positions.

Following the election, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) experienced greatly increased demand for its services, especially supporting those that have been targets of hate.  ADL has been contacted by numerous victims and has worked with law enforcement, schools, media and coalition partners.  ADL truly appreciates Rose Community Foundation’s demonstration of support and is pleased its work is consistent with the values of justice and nondiscrimination that guide the Foundation’s work.

The organizations that received grants all work to prevent and/or respond to acts of hate, bigotry or anti-Semitism.

Organizations that received these grants are:

  • American Civil Liberties Union
  • Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region
  • The Center
  • Chalkbeat
  • Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC)
  • Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy & Research Organization
  • Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning
  • Together Colorado
