Add Color to the Colorado KaleidosCOpe

On Oct. 15, the Foundation’s Colorado KaleidosCOpe storytelling campaign will officially end. After five years and more than 50 contributions, the Foundation is closing one door so we can open another. We’re freshening up how we communicate about our work and the difference we make. In the coming months, we will launch a new website and blog that will help us tell an even more compelling story of health.  All KaleidosCOpe videos and written narratives will be integrated into the new website. In the meantime, you will be able to find your submitted content on the KaleidosCOpe site through the end of the year and videos will remain on YouTube.
Interested grantees can submit narratives with through Oct. 15, 2016. Those selected for publication will be awarded an unrestricted donation of $5,000 per video and $1,000 per written narrative with optional photography.
