The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships is committed to connecting Denver's nonprofit community with informational resources and reports. 


The Well-Being of Nonprofits in Denver: A Blueprint for Change

The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships (DOSP) and the Denver Strategic Partnerships Commission have created and released "The Wellbeing of Nonprofits In Denver", a report on Denver's nonprofit community.

The report includes findings from qualitative interviews with nonprofits and a survey that was completed by a little over 300 nonprofits. The results of this research culminated in recommendations to help nonprofits with sustainability and to improve the nonprofit community's contracting relationship with the City and County of Denver.
