Boettcher Foundation Announces 2023 Cohort for Doers & Difference Makers Fellowship


DENVER, July 24, 2023 — The Boettcher Foundation is excited to announce the third cohort of Fellows to participate in its Doers & Difference Makers Fellowship.

The Fellowship seeks to identify, celebrate, elevate, and connect community champions from across Colorado. The program elevates these individuals’ voices and amplifies their impact through structured opportunities to develop as individual leaders and members of Colorado’s ecosystem, including a financial investment, individualized coaching, and an emphasis on building connections.

“I am thrilled to support these 9 Colorado leaders who have been selected to participate in Boettcher’s Doers & Difference Makers Fellowship,” said Katie Kramer, president & CEO of the Boettcher Foundation. “Each of these individuals is already making a difference and we look forward to providing them with more tools to increase and magnify their impacts on Colorado communities.”

The 2023 Fellows, chosen from a competitive process, come from a variety of backgrounds, sectors, and geographic regions. They are local leaders engaged in economic development, youth development, civic engagement, and more. Though unique in their professional backgrounds and lived experiences, each Fellow is determined to serve Colorado and their community with courageous leadership.
