Youth Opportunity Foundation organizes and hosts two unique fundraising events each year, with proceeds benefiting Denver Urban Scholars and The Bridge Project (as well as other youth-focused nonprofits) , all providing mentoring, educational opportunities and life experiences to at-risk youth. Our participants, growers and colorers are  younger professionals who have the chance to meet new people, feel good about giving back to the community, and have a ton of fun.

  • YOF is a small organization, run almost entirely by volunteers. Therefore, it has very low overhead, so more of all donations goes directly to the beneficiaries.

  • Approximately 93 cents of every dollar we raise goes directly to the beneficiaries.

  • Corporate sponsors are able to gain exposure among a large group of active young professionals. The average age of YOF event participants is 35.

  • Networking and relationship-building at YOF events can often lead to new connections benefiting both individuals and Corporate Partners.

  • YOF volunteers coordinate all aspects of the event(s), leaving the beneficiaries' staff members free to focus on other tasks/responsibilities.

  • Our events are fun. And as such, it's a great way to network in a non-stuffy environment, meet new people and enjoy giving back to the Denver community!
