Nonprofit Engagement Commission


The dates for the November and December Denver Nonprofit Commission Meetings have shifted due to Holidays. Commissioners will be meeting on November 18th from 12-1:30 at The Colorado Health Foundation with members of the community able to connect via Zoom using this link. Our December meeting will not be a traditional meeting as we will be holding an end of the year celebration and conducting a meet and greet for our new commissioners recruited this year. 

The Nonprofit Engagement Commission serves as a catalyst for leveraging the best of Denver’s public and nonprofit sectors and their commitment to engaging in innovative and collaborative work. The Commission’s core work is focused on providing support for the Office of Nonprofit Engagement and the implementation of its strategies and goals.

It is made up of representatives from the nonprofit, government, and for-profit sectors, and Commissioners serve two-year terms. Applications for the Commission are accepted annually at any time, but has specific recruitment focus occurring in January and February, with new appointments being made in April. 


The Nonprofit Engagement Commission is a group of dedicated community members and nonprofit leaders who advocate for Denver nonprofits. We bring the voices and concerns of nonprofits directly to the mayor’s office, paving a way for more vibrant partnerships. 


We are currently recruiting commissioners that represent Denver’s diverse and thriving nonprofit sector to join us in our efforts to strengthen our city check out our 2021 Commission Priorities for more info!
