Kaiser Permanente is the state’s largest nonprofit health care provider, proudly working to improve the lives and health of Colorado residents for 48 years. We provide comprehensive health care services to 690,000 members through 31 medical offices and a network of affiliated hospitals and physicians. We invest the time, expertise, and resources of 7,200 Kaiser Permanente Colorado physicians and employees who are focused on making the lives of our members and communities healthier. We’re committed to our social mission and in 2016, proudly directly more than $118 million to community benefit programs to improve the health of all Coloradans.
We understand that health extends beyond the doctor’s office and the hospital. To be completely healthy, people need access to healthy and nutritious foods, clean air, effective schools, safe parks and playgrounds. We work hard to meet communities where they are, spending time in schools and meeting with local groups, listening to people who are accessing services. We’re very intentional about improving the health and vitality of Colorado communities.
We impact thousands of lives each year through a wide range of programs, partnerships, and assistance to help those in our community. For many years, we’ve worked collaboratively with community organizations to assess the community’s health needs and resources.

We recently refined our strategies and we offer grantfunding opportunities based on specific public health issues. You can keep abreast of these opportunities from our community investments page on this website.
