Our Story

The Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation (“Denver Active 20-30”) is a non-profit service organization for business leaders between the ages of 20 and 39. Chartered under Active 20-30 International, the Foundation members represent a diversity of professional backgrounds. The mission of the Foundation is to raise money for disadvantaged children through annual fund-raising events and projects. Since it’s inception in 1987, events hosted by Denver Active 20-30 have raised over $10 million.

The 28-year old foundation is dedicated to contributing to the betterment and welfare of the children in the local community. In its efforts to help others each member also strives to develop character, become a better citizen and learn to live and appreciate a fuller and richer life. In addition, the organization strives to raise the community’s awareness of the need to care for underprivileged children in the state of Colorado through fundraising and hands on community service.

Our Members

 

Our Foundation is lead by an experienced Board of Directors. We’ve intentionally kept the group small to emphasize the quality of our initiatives and to assure that each member has a significant roll in our success. Members are only required to pay a minimal dues to cover meals at our meetings and to care about the future of Denver’s children.  We work together through our personal and professional networks to raise money and create opportunities for the charities we assist.

What does it mean to be a Member?

Denver Active 20-30 members typically meet every other Wednesdays from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at various restaurants around town.  The annual dues ($600) are used to pay for these bi-weekly dinners.  Members who raise a minimum of $2,000 per year are entitled to vote on agenda items and for officers. Members are expected to attend a minimum of 75% of the meetings and provide “manpower” at our major fund-raising events.

Our Impact

After raising funds through its fundraising events, Denver Active 20-30 distributes the money back into the community via a formal and extensive grant application and review process. As the individual members have worked countless hours in raising the funds, Denver Active 20-30 makes every effort to ensure that the money is used to generate the greatest good for the children. Because of the bond created between Denver Active 20-30 and the charities it supports, it is essential that all funds raised have the greatest impact in the community. To be considered for donations, a charity must submit their information via an online form prior to the deadline in mid-to-late summer. After applying, a Denver Active 20-30 member then contacts the charity to begin the review process. Denver Active 20-30 conducts reviews of each applying agency and determines its giving slate during the 4th and 1st quarter of each year.
