Who We Are

Community Resource Center envisions a strong and sustainable nonprofit sector leading our state towards a more just future. Strong Colorado communities need resilient and healthy nonprofits who offer innovative programming that achieves greater mission success and are better stewards of awarded dollars and donations. CRC works alongside nonprofits, government entities, foundations, and other community stakeholders creating broader connections and impact within the community.

Mission & History

Community Resource Center (CRC) was founded in 1981. CRC’s initial mission was to assist organizations that used community organizing to promote social change in Denver’s inner city. By 1984, the mission expanded to encompass the broad range of nonprofit organizations and community groups that provide services throughout Colorado. CRC has responded to the needs of the sector by continually developing new ways to serve Colorado’s nonprofits.

Our Strategic Plan & Framework for Capacity Building

Community Resource Center believes in the power of the nonprofit sector to affect change and support thriving communities. We envision a strong and sustainable nonprofit sector leading our state towards a more just future. Our mission is to create opportunities, tools, and strategies to develop nonprofits and community groups to strengthen Colorado.
