Civic Center Conservancy is the nonprofit dedicated to keeping Denver's Civic Center Park active and thriving for all. Donations support the people who organize, volunteer, and work to ensure Civic Center is a place to play, pause, process, and participate for years to come.

We're more than just a park. By prioritizing people, we prioritize the park. 

Civic Center Park is centered in the community. Give to support our programs like:

  1. Youth Workforce Development: We supported young people who gained skills to find purpose and build sustainable careers in music and events. Giving supports opportunities for young people to learn, grow, and soar as they gain skills in these industries. 50 young people received opportunities this year!
  2. Workforce Development: We supported 40+ individuals transitioning out of homelessness to clean and maintain the park. Giving supports these essential crew members as they improve their mental and physical health while planting tulips and caring for the iconic park in the city they love.
  3. Food Access: We provided 1,000 meals to those in need. Support goes to help our SPARKLES volunteers plant, cultivate, and harvest
  4. Harvest for the Hungry: Our volunteers helped cultivate and harvest 2,000 pounds of produce for food banks from the park's 10 produce beds with Grow Local Colorado in addition to beautifying the park's signature flower beds all summer long. 

But we can do more, and you can help.
