Discretionary Funding Grants

The Denver County Cultural Council (DCCC) sets aside 5% of the SCFD Denver Tier III allocation to provide discretionary funding in the areas of Organization Development and Collaboration. Organization Development grants support training, equipment and consultation on areas such as board development, diversity, equity and inclusion training, strategic planning, marketing tactics, fundraising or accounting. Innovation collaboration grants support collaborative projects led by Tier III organizations. Discretionary funds are considered on an annual basis.
