How to Give


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 [email protected].

Burn Ambassador Fundraising Campaign



Even as a toddler, Julian was interested in how things worked. He liked to watch his parents and mimic their actions, including pretending to cook one night when his mom was making some noodles for dinner. In the split second his mom, Ericka, turned to pull a bag of frozen peas out of the freezer, Julian tried grabbing the spoon, which was in the pot of boiling water and noodles, to stir his dinner. Instead of stirring, he accidentally tipped the scalding hot water onto himself and suffered serious burns to his right arm. Julian was rushed to the Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital Colorado, where he was treated by the burn team.  The multidisciplinary team within the Burn Center at Children’s Colorado helped bandage him up and determined his best care plan moving forward. Three weeks later he received a skin graft. Once Julian was old enough, he started attending Children’s Colorado’s annual Burn Camp and met a lot of kids with burn injuries just like him. Now, 16 and a junior in high school, Julian is still interested in how things work. He is on his high school’s robotics team and even has plans to bring some robotics projects to Children’s Colorado to share with patients and families.

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.
