The New Belgium Family Foundation funds regional efforts to increase bike and pedestrian infrastructure and make public transportation a viable option for everyone. We believe that these alternative transportation options help create healthier, happier communities and are best carried out in collaboration with diverse groups of stakeholders. Our participation in and support of Mile High Connects allows us to bolster the exciting work happening on the Front Range.
New Belgium Family Foundation supports three other program areas in addition to alternative transportation—increasing renewable energy adoption, strengthening local food systems, and promoting youth engagement. This is carried out through meaningful grants and investments, as well as by funding and engaging in strategic advocacy. The intersections between transportation, energy, and food systems inform many of our activities, in Colorado as well as in our other geographies of the Bay Area and around the Puget Sound.
