El Sistema Colorado - Changing Lives Through Music

Colorado Nonprofit Development Center

Your gift will have twice the impact this Colorado Gives Day! A generous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar up to $15,000. Help us reach our goal of turning $15,000 into $30,000 this Colorado Gives Day!

El Sistema Colorado is inspired by a global movement started in Venezuela almost 45 years ago. Our mission is to transform lives through music education. Our model is: intensive, afterschool, ensemble music education. Children learn in an ensemble so they experience the value of teamwork, leadership, collective impact. Performance opportunities occur throughout the year with partners like Metro State, Denver Philharmonic, Baroque Chamber Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra.

Our impact: 90% of teachers report that their El Sistema students have improved academic performance. 98% of parents report that their student has improved teamwork skills. In only 6 years, 11 El Sistema children have been accepted to the prestigious and nationally recognized Denver School of the Arts.

El Sistema Colorado needs $50,000 to reach our 2018 fundraising goal. Will you help us get there? Your gift on Colorado Gives Day helps us fully realize this generous matching grant and raises 60% of our year-end goal in just one day!

El Sistema Colorado is a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center.
