Help develop potential into talent with ActivateWork
Make the gift of a life-changing career
Today in Denver, over 192,000 people are living at or near the poverty level. Unemployment and under-employment lie at the core of this issue. There is no better solution than a good job. ActivateWork prepares people to succeed in full-time, thriving wage jobs. On average, our graduates grow their incomes by 121% in their new careers.
Your contribution will give our learners access to world-class training and jobs that will transform their lives, their families, and their communities.
General Operating support
Your gift will be used to address our most pressing needs to scale this evidence-based workforce development program in Colorado.
Give to the Emergency Fund
Too often, our learners are forced to drop a program because of their financial circumstances. Lack of childcare, issues with transportation, or trouble paying rent and bills can hold someone back from graduating. When you give to the Emergency Fund, you provide learners up to $500 for immediate assistance in overcoming obstacles that interfere with their coursework.
Sponsor a LEARNER
A gift of $10,000 will provide a learner access to quality IT training, jobs with leading employers in Denver, and ongoing coaching and support to ensure their success.
We would like to express our gratitude to the following organizations for their generous contributions to ActivateWork:
American Institute of Research
Community First Foundation
El Pomar Foundation
Gary Community Ventures
Rose Community Foundation
