The Colorado Public Interest Research Group Foundation (CoPIRG Foundation or Colorado Public Interest Research Foundation) is the research arm of the Colorado Public Interest Research Group (CoPIRG), a left-of-center organization that belongs to a federation of advocacy organizations created by Ralph Nader, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (US-PIRG).
The CoPIRG Foundation provides CoPIRG with research services, with the intention of propagating that information within the public sphere, often referring to its materials as “educational.”  The CoPIRG Foundation’s priorities include increasing government control of healthcare and advocating for higher taxes, with an emphasis on pushing for the elimination of tax credits and deductions. 
Danny Katz is the state director of the CoPIRG Foundation.  Katz is also a member of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Efficiency and Accountability Committee and Transit and Rail Advisory Committee. He is a founding member of the Financial Equity Coalition, an organization that works to increase public participation in entitlement programs.
