Focus Area: Healthy Communities
If there’s one phrase that describes Rose, it’s mission-driven. Proof in point: she’s been volunteering since she was a child, and has continued that passion into adulthood, working with nonprofits in order to help them to become more effective and impactful. Rose is deeply committed to decreasing inequality and improving people’s lives — she believes health and education are the two most important ways to do this.
As a program officer, she helps support the Foundation’s grantmaking strategies and develops relationships with our partners at nonprofit organizations. Over the past year, Rose had the unique opportunity to be part of a team that develops innovative and flexible ways for the Foundation to fund organizations by focusing on community needs. This work has given her the opportunity to meet amazing people from all over Colorado and learn about a diverse range of projects.
Green is not just her last name — it also reflects some of her favorite aspects of life in Colorado. She appreciates spring when the plants are waking up and the flowers are blooming in the warm temperatures. She enjoys biking, hiking, gardening and practicing gratitude daily.
As a Denver native, the Colorado Museum of Nature and Science is a nostalgic favorite of hers. When she’s not exploring the Space Odyssey exhibit, she’s probably volunteering for an organization whose mission she believes in.
