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


The VF Foundation supports non-profit organizations in driving movements for the betterment of people and the planet. This includes movements that define Worthy Work, because work dignifies us. The VF Foundtion embraces the fact that Outside Matters, because nature humanizes us. The foundation empowers diversity, equity and inclusion as we are Free to Be, because our differences unite us. Thanks to the VF Foundation for supporting our Denver Digs Trees program.




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.

Founded in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with more than one million members, supporters, and valued partners.  Their vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, poverty and hunger.  As one of the world's largest operating conservation foundations, the Arbor Day Foundation educates and engages stakeholders and communities across the globe to involve themselves in its mission of planting, nurturing and celebrating trees.

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! Click Colorado 811's logo to learn more about requesting free utility locates before digging.


Denver Water proudly serves high-quality water and promotes its efficient use to 1.5 million people in the city of Denver and many surrounding suburbs.

The Park People is proud to have Denver Water's support of our Denver Digs Trees program.
