Grants Help Expand Digital Literacy, Promote Community Service and Youth Leadership Development

Comcast in Colorado contributes approximately $15 million in financial and in-kind resources each year to programs and partnerships helping communities across the state thrive. These contributions include grants from the Comcast Foundation, which announced today total more than $650,000 to Colorado nonprofit organizations in 2017. The grants help grow the impact of programs aimed at expanding digital literacy, promoting service, and mentoring tomorrow’s leaders.

Anchor Center for Blind Children, Boys & Girls Clubs, Servicios de La Raza and Girls Inc. are just a few of the many local organizations making a significant difference in the community supported by the Comcast Foundation this year.

“Comcast is proud to support our partner organizations throughout the year to improve our communities and enrich the lives of all Coloradans,” said Rich Jennings, senior vice president of Comcast Mountain West Region. “The important work of these nonprofit organizations ensures Colorado is a better place to call home.”
