Who We Are

We are a nonprofit for nonprofits

With decades of combined experience in nonprofit fundraising, we saw a need in our community. That need was to give already great, yet under-supported organizations a helping hand in their mission. Colorado has more than 20,000 charitable organizations that are important in creating quality of life in our state. We hope to bolster those efforts by bringing funding to these causes. We also strive to create fun and unique events, where donors, patrons, and sponsors can enjoy their gift and network philanthropically.
