Social Enterprise Foundry


Sun Valley Neighborhood

Urban Land Conservancy acquired the 44,000 square foot Social Enterprise Foundry in 2014. Since then, the Foundry has provided affordable, quality warehouse space for tenants who share an environmental focus in their missions. ULC financed the purchase with support from the Denver Office of Economic Development and the Calvert Facility Fund as part of the Ours To Own initiative in Metro Denver. The Foundry currently hosts four tenants. The warehouse includes over 8,000 square feet of office space as well.

Deemed as community change in action, accordingly the Foundry serves as a collaborative home for nonprofits. At the present time, the Foundry serves as a space for those interested in social enterprise to visit and witness a model for nonprofit management in action.
