About the Barton Institute 

In 2016, the University of Denver (DU) and David Miller came together to establish at DU a new Institute for Philanthropy and Social Enterprise, the first of its kind in Colorado.

The Institute is interdisciplinary, bringing together resources from the university and the community to address major social issues. At the Barton Institute, we believe that such issues can only be addressed when the public, private, and nonprofit sectors come together.

Our Mission


The Institute addresses major social issues and improves society by promoting and enhancing traditional and new forms of philanthropy, social enterprise, and partnerships among the private, public, nonprofit, and academic sectors.
