A History Rooted in the Community
For over 75 years, the Denver Council on Foreign Relations has conducted candid, informed discussions among a cross-section in the Front Range community - including business, law, military, diplomatic, medical, university and other professionals – and the national and international policy communities in order to heighten public awareness and build understanding of contemporary and emerging international issues. Hosting an array of guest speakers for dinners, and special breakfasts, as well as sponsoring a range of educational programs and opportunities, DCFR seeks a better informed Colorado regarding the global issues that impact us all. Founded in 1938 as a committee of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, the Denver Council on Foreign Relations (DCFR) is incorporated as an independent, non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
DCFR: 75th Anniversary Celebration
On May 13, 2014, the Denver Council on Foreign Relations, joined by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, celebrated its 75th Anniversary. During this celebration, the DCFR began awarding distinguished members of the community with the Leadership in Global Engagement Award. Recepients are recognized for their outstanding achievements in linking Denver, the Front Range, and Colorado via global, international, national, statewide, and local engagement.
