Giving and Philanthropy




Philanthropy means "love of humanity," and there is plenty of love going around in Denver. Charitable nonprofits of all kinds give locals the vehicle to help reduce inequality, ease social problems and work for the common good. But sometimes there's a disconnect between philanthropy and giving. Tap into your passions and pet causes and help build a better city. For some, this means donating money, but for others, it's about spending time by volunteering for their favorite charity. Both tacts are welcome: Denver needs both donors and volunteers, because, in the end, it's all about doing some good.
