2023 Annual Report – Committed to Colorado

Our 2023 Annual Report reflects Gates Family Foundation’s deep and ongoing commitment to a more equitable, resilient, and sustainable Colorado for all. Over the course of the year, Gates distributed just over $43 million through 378 grants, made five mission-related private equity and private credit commitments totaling $8.5 million, and made four program-related investments in 2023 totaling $2.0 million.

In our four strategic focus areas, our 2023 priorities included youth advocacy and climate-related workforce opportunities in rural Colorado (education), launching an ambitious mass timber initiative (natural resources), affordable and accessible housing, workforce development, and community wealth building (community development), and standing up a community printing press for Front Range publishers and preparing newsrooms for community-centered elections coverage (informed communities).
