Sponsors & Partners


The Park People relies on the support of funding partners who make our work possible. We have a mix of sponsors who support our programs, projects, and events. Over the years, we have also forged many strategic partnerships with fellow Denver nonprofits, citizen groups, and neighborhood associations. Those listed below are just some that have been integral to the success and impact of our work.

Program Sponsors


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


The Colorado Garden Foundation is dedicated to furthering the horticulture industry.  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 tree planting efforts through the Denver Digs Trees 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 15% 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 15% of their commission to local Denver nonprofits



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. Over forty 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 repeated sponsor of the Community Forester Program.

Colorado 811 is nonprofit dedicated to keeping Colorado's underground infrastructure safe from excavation damages. Anyone who is digging in the state of Colorado is required to click or call 811 at least three business days before they plan to dig. The Park People believes in planting trees - and safely! So our Denver Digs Trees program has a natural alignment with Colorado 811's goals for smart and safe digging!
