How to Give

Donate

The Burn Camps Program is built 100% on donations and people believing in what we’re doing. It sets us apart and makes us proud of what we do every day. Community support allows us to provide these opportunities to pediatric burn survivors at no cost to them or their families. Click here to make an online donation to the Burn Camps Program.

Sponsor an Event

Sponsoring a special event benefiting Children’s Colorado draws attention from the media and the community while providing a great opportunity for employees to interact as a team outside the workplace.

Our annual signature events include Creating Ties and Courage Classic.

Start an Employee Giving Program

We can help you start an employee giving program at your workplace through our partnership with Community Shares.

Workplace giving campaigns are a fun way to unite company’s employees around a common goal and provide an opportunity for employees and company leadership to work together to inspire charitable community investment. Inviting employees to give through paycheck contributions benefits the community while allowing employees to choose their favorite charitable recipients.

To get started or if you have questions, contact Tim Schuetz, Outreach Coordinator, at (720) 777-6292 or tim.schuetz@childrenscolorado.org.

Burn Ambassador Fundraising Campaigns

Elizabeth

Elizabeth

Elizabeth was vacationing in Florida when a grease fire started in the kitchen. Elizabeth suffered severe burns on her arms and legs. Elizabeth’s family brought her home and went straight to Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Burn Clinic, where an expert team provided exceptional care that helped Elizabeth to heal both inside and out. Elizabeth credits her caregivers with helping her to live as normal a life as possible following her accident. Donate to Elizabeth’s fundraising page.

Grace

Grace

Grace was on vacation in the mountains when she was involved in a four-wheeler accident. The vehicle flipped and landed on Grace, dragging her across the dirt road. Grace’s left leg was broken, and she suffered 3rd degree burns in the accident. She spent a month at Children’s Colorado, undergoing multiple surgeries to help heal her wounds. After her cast was removed, Grace had several skin graft surgeries. She is now back to skiing and dancing. Donate to Grace’s fundraising page.

Thrive Endowment

An endowment dedicated to the lives of pediatric burn survivors and the power of camp.

In 2020, we started an endowment dedicated to the lives of pediatric burn survivors and the power of camp. Keating Wagner Polidori Free PC donated seed money to the Children’s Hospital Colorado Burn Camps Program to create an endowed fund. The Thrive Endowment ensures any child who has sustained a burn injury has the opportunity to attend Burn Camp long into the future.

Because an endowment is an invested pool of money that provides a reliable source of income in perpetuity, our program can count on annual distributions from the fund. This provides independence from internal and external forces allowing us to continue to provide excellent programming to any child and/or family that has sustained a burn injury.

Because the Thrive Endowment can accept additional contributions from individuals, over time financial support will continue to grow. All gifts enable us to continue to provide camp at no cost to families in perpetuity.

Click here to make an online donation, or for additional questions about the Thrive Endowment, please contact Tim Schuetz at (720) 777-6292 or tim.schuetz@childrenscolorado.org.
