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 Foundation 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. 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.



Growing steadily since 1999, MDC/Richmond American Homes Foundation has funded worthy causes both locally and across the globe.  Whether it's sending aid to a women's shelter, supporting educational opportunities for at-risk youth or contributing funds to preserve and enhance local parks, every cause the foundation supports is focused on one thing: laying a sustainable foundation for a brighter tomorrow--for everyone.  The Park People is grateful for MDC/Richmond American Homes Foundation's sponsorship of our Denver Digs Trees program and powerful support offering a generous matching fund this year!
