Foundation

We believe philanthropy plays an important role in taking risks and accelerating progress and change. Through ZOMA Foundation, we use philanthropy as a catalytic tool to support communities to explore traditional and non-traditional methods, pilot new models, and incubate place-based approaches that can scale and/or replicate in service of strengthening social and economic systems.

COLORADO

Our philanthropic work in Colorado focuses on Early Childhood Development and Community Economic Development.

Early Childhood Development

Working across five Metro-Denver counties (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, and Jefferson) focusing on conception to five in the following areas:

  • Perinatal Mental Health

Raising the standard of mental health screening and care from conception through twelve months postpartum to support the critical development of a strong parent-child bond that will set the course for optimal social and emotional development.

  • Child Maltreatment Prevention and Care

Expanding preventative strategies to reduce the number of children who experience maltreatment and increasing access to services that mitigate harm and support children and families in healing.

  • Parent Awareness

Improving access to quality resources, affordable services, and support to help parents be well informed about their child’s development and encouraged to access relevant, affordable services to support their families.

Community Economic Development

Supporting rural communities across Colorado in developing approaches that leverage local assets to catalyze economic opportunities and serve as replicable models for other communities.

CHILE

Our philanthropic work in Chile is led by Fundación Viento Sur, focused on Early Childhood Development, Workforce Development, and Community Economic Development.

 

Early Childhood Development

Supporting collaboration across sectors so that children, from conception to five, have the opportunity to grow up in optimal socio-emotional and cognitive environments to develop their full potential in life. We focus our work in the following areas:

  • Prevention and Care for Child Neglect, Maltreatment, and Sexual Abuse

  • Perinatal Mental Health

  • Parent awareness 

Workforce Development

Increasing access to and navigation of quality career pathways to help individuals obtain job-relevant skills and pursue meaningful careers.
