Kristin Todd, The Daniels Fund

Location, Denver, CO

The Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming through its grants program, scholarship program and ethics initiative.

We have provided $3.2 million in grants to the Craig Foundation over the years to support the Redefining ROI Capital Campaign, provide durable medical equipment to patients, fund cutting-edge rehabilitation equipment, and sponsor the PUSH Gala.

We also established the Bill Daniels Neighborhood Hero Fund to help emergency services personnel being treated at Craig and their families. This fund covers expenses to reduce the hardship for families of injured U.S. military, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMTs/paramedics who need to travel to be with their loved ones while they are in treatment.

Bill Daniels was known for his generosity and his compassion for those in need. He was inspired to direct the Daniels Fund Grants Program to support programs for people with disabilities, in part because of personal experiences with disabilities within his family and his own experience as he aged. He felt people should be valued for what they could do, not what they couldn’t. Our goal for funding in the area of physical disabilities is to help people gain access to life-altering, durable equipment that increases their independence and quality of life.

Our partnership with a highly effective organization such as Craig Hospital has allowed us to help provide access to leading care and equipment to those who need it and maximize the impact of Bill’s legacy in this area.
