Colorado Immigrant Funders Collaborative

The Colorado Immigrant Funders Collaborative (CIFC) is a collaborative formed to engage and encourage Colorado funders throughout the state to support immigrant issues. Founded in 2015, CIFC supports organizations in their mobilizing efforts, helping to build greater capacity to implement rapid response services, legal services and expand current knowledge around issues.

Since its inception the Colorado Funders Collaborative (CIFC) has invested over $800,000 to local nonprofit organizations that provide community education, outreach and legal services for some of Colorado’s most vulnerable immigrant populations. In 2017, CIFC grantees assisted dreamers on their paths to college, recently released detainees, Latinas experiencing domestic violence, and thousands of immigrants working on DACA paperwork, and others.

Grants are closed for the 2019 cycle. Please check the grantmaking page for more information as it becomes available.
