Job Description:

About The Colorado Trust The Colorado Trust (The Trust) is a health equity foundation dedicated to ending inequalities that affect racial, ethnic, low-income and other vulnerable populations. When the nonprofit PSL Healthcare Corporation was sold to a for-profit organization in 1985, the proceeds of the sale were used to create The Trust. Since then, The Trust has worked closely with communities and nonprofit organizations throughout the state to improve the health and well-being of Coloradans. The Trust strives to maintain a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. About the Community Partnerships Strategy A more just and equitable society is a healthier society.--The Trust's Community Partnerships strategy supports communities across Colorado in recognizing and building their own power to achieve these conditions. The Trust's role in the partnership is to provide resources and investment for capacity building, community organizing and collaboration at a local level. The lion's share of the work is done by communities themselves. Diverse teams of Coloradans identify the barriers to justice and good health in their own communities and propose and implement solutions with funding from The Trust. By building their collective power, communities can best address the injustices that impact people disproportionately based on their race or ethnicity, their income or where they live.
