You can help sustain and strengthen the critical services we provide to our community, to weather the crisis resulting from COVID-19. Donations gifted in April 2020 will go to our ArtLab Interns, PlatteForum artists and our fellow creatives inside The Temple, where PlatteForum is located in downtown Denver.
We must do everything we can to continue providing critical services to our community but we can’t do it without the support of YOU, our PlatteForum family.
Mail us a check! Send to PlatteForum 2400 Curtis Street, Suite 100, Denver, CO, 80205
For other options, including donating stock: contact Executive Director Kim Estes McCarty at email@example.com for details
Using the arts as a bridge, PlatteForum connects local youth to resources to ensure they graduate on time, prepare for post-secondary success and engage in their communities to create positive change.
But did you know, the resources we provide to youth are so much more than academic and creative? Achieving our 12-year, 97% high school graduation rate for PlatteForum’s ArtLab Interns is only attainable by addressing ALL of their needs.
PlatteForum provides resources and financial support to more than 30 professional artists and service contractors annually. Since many of these professionals work as independent contractors, the suspension of our programs has eliminated a significant source of their income. This campaign will also provide grocery boxes for our artists and fellow creatives who are based at The Temple.
We rely on our artists, staff and contractors, whose creative, academic, mental health and social work skills and services have grown PlatteForum into an extraordinary community resource over the last 18 years.
Donations of any size help us continue providing services to our community. We are all in this together and your generous gift strengthens OUR community.
Thank you for your ongoing support and generosity during this time of uncertainty and change.
With gratitude and hope,
PlatteForum’s Executive Committee
Beth Moyski, Chairperson
Michael Gadlin, Vice Chairperson
Keith Ambuhl, Treasurer
Daniel Flora, Secretary

It’s not too late to apply for the Artist Residency program at PlatteForum. In light of the current global health crisis, we want to extend the deadline so that more artists have time to apply.
Artists of ALL disciplines and genres are welcome to apply. Whether you are an established professional artist, an emerging creative/maker, or a graduate student, we invite you to apply for consideration to participate in this unique, urban residency. Artistic excellence, merit, and creative ways of interacting with youth and the public in issues of social change and justice are important criteria in the selection process.
