“The Giving Guide provides us with a valuable opportunity to get in front of corporate decision-makers that we may not otherwise have access to. Our spread is an important tool in maintaining Make-A-Wish Colorado as a prominent name in the Denver business community. The Giving Guide allows us to share information on mission delivery, events, volunteer and giving opportunities.”
- Natasha Silensky, Communications Manager
Make-A-Wish© Colorado


“When I worked in the for-profit world, I turned to the Giving Guide to find great nonprofit organizations for my company to support. With the help of our generous sponsor, King Soopers, this will be Food Bank of the Rockies’ seventh consecutive year in the guide. It’s an important listing that allows us to share information with our current and potential supporters in the business community, keeping us on their radar for contributions and volunteers. I know from past experience, the Giving Guide is a great year-long resource for businesses to connect with and support charitable organizations in their communities.”
- Janie Gianotsos, Director of Marketing and Community Relations
Food Bank of the Rockies


“We are proud to be part of the Denver Business Journal Giving Guide. It is a very effective tool to show off the power of our proven one-to-one mentoring programs. It also gives us an opportunity to work with CoBank and exhibit the continued partnership we have with them and model the community impact a relationship between a corporation and non-profit can have.”
- Katie Groke Ellis, Director of Communications and Marketing
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado


“For us, the Giving Guide is the right place to be at the right time. It gives us a wonderful opportunity to tell our story to a qualified audience of business leaders who are looking at how to give back at year end. It’s a great value—and it works. I’ve seen major donors come from the exposure.”
- John Kayser, Director, Marketing & Communications
Jewish Family Service of Colorado


“Not only is the Giving Guide an essential tool for the business community, it’s a valuable guide for our larger community to learn about charitable giving. Denver Rescue Mission is privileged to be amongst so many charities serving the underserved.”
- Alexxa Gagner, Director of Public Relations
Denver Rescue Mission


"Our goal was to place ourselves in front of interested sponsors, donors and other supporters. Our sponsor saw this as a prime opportunity to support us while also positioning themselves as a dedicated community supporter. Since being in the Giving Guide, we have received inquiries from potential sponsors and volunteers - just the results we were looking for!"

- Becky Herlinger, March of Dimes

"The Giving Guide gives Comcast an opportunity to share more about our community involvement in a unique way that also supports many of our valued community partners. It gives us an avenue to highlight our community support that might not otherwise get recognized. We hope by sharing our community messages that it will encourage other businesses to consider giving back as well."

- Cindy Parsons, Comcast

"Dear Family Tree Organization,
The student council of Colorado Academy, a private Pre-K-12 grade school, held a three day candy cane sale in their middle school and they voted that the proceeds from the sale go to your organization. We read about your organization in the Denver Business Journal's Giving Guide (pg. 70). We hope this contribution brightens the day of those you serve.
"
Sincerely,

Jim Milavec, David Wadsworth, Peggy Butler 

Faculty advisors to the Colorado Academy Middle School Student Council
