Program Sponsors

The Park People has a mix of sponsors who support our programs and stand-alone events.

As Denver's primary utility supplier of electric power and natural gas service, Xcel Energy supports nonprofit projects that focus on the connection between environment and energy. We deeply appreciate our long-standing partnership with Xcel Energy, a committed and ardent supporter of our Denver Digs Trees program for more than 20 years.

Proceeds from the foundation's annual Colorado Garden & Home Show fund grants organizations and scholarships to individuals throughout Colorado. Our warm thanks to Colorado Garden Foundation  for supporting our 2015 Denver Digs Trees program.

As an energy company, Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. has a strong commitment to conservation. We are grateful for Encana's support of our Denver Digs Trees program for five years now, helping residents reduce our energy bills by providing shade trees that cool our homes naturally.

Founded in 1974, Mountain High Tree Lawn & Landscape Company began as a family-owned, full-service company dedicated to nurturing and preserving Colorado's urban forests and landscapes. Forty-one years later, their vision of caring for Denver's urban forest through environmentally responsible programs has been realized. Mountain High recycles 100% of its tree debris, uses local products and works to educate customers to be eco-friendly in their tree and landscape care. We are fortunate to have Mountain High as a 2015 sponsor of the Community Forester Program.

The Park People is delighted to be a Partner of Choice in TKH Realty's We Give Where We Live program. This means that TKH Realty will donate 25% of their gross commission for any real estate transaction directly to The Park People when either party designates The Park People as their choice organization. TKH Realty is an independent real estate social enterprise holding the fundamental belief that if we all give a little, our society as a whole prospers. Therefore, TKH Realty makes a practice of donating 25% of their commission to local Denver nonprofits.
