Five Ways to Support Denver Kids This Fall


From donning your best sparkles at our 75th Anniversary Bright Futures Gala to running with Team Denver Kids in the 2021 Denver Colfax Marathon, read on for five ways to support Denver Kids this season.

  1. Order from Charcutnuvo this month! Charcutnuvo is a local small-batch charcuterie producer. Throughout the month of September, they're donating 10% of total website sales to Denver Kids. Simply make your purchase online by the end of the month!
  2. Run and fundraise for Denver Kids as part of the Denver Colfax Marathon on October 16 & 17! To get started, register to run, then enter the race of your choice—Marathon, Half Marathon, Urban 10 Miler, Relay, OR run/walk the 5k—and select Denver Kids as your Charity Partner at checkout. If you have already registered, you can still log back in and select Denver Kids.

    From there, we’ll help set up your fundraising page, provide fundraising instructions, and stay in touch throughout the entire process. Learn more!
  3. Join us in celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Denver Kids! This year’s Bright Futures Gala, inspired by our “diamond” anniversary, will be a night to celebrate our 75-year legacy of serving the resilient, determined, brilliant young people we work with, and look ahead to the bright futures of our students and Denver Kids.

    The event will feature a cocktail reception, silent and live auction, delicious food, Denver Kids alumni, a paddle raise, music & dancing, and more. Whether you wear a formal gown or a fun costume, deck yourself out in your best sparkles in honor of our diamond anniversary. Learn more and get your tickets and sponsorship today!

    Special thanks to our Platinum event sponsors: Noel & Erika Wickwar and Larry & Margaret Byrne
  4. Save the date for Colorado Gives Day 2021: Tuesday, December 7! Community First Foundation presents this annual statewide movement that celebrates and increases philanthropy through online giving.

Mark your calendars for December 7, and don't forget to donate to Denver Kids on Colorado Gives Day 2021!
