Concerts For Kids was started in Denver, Colorado with the vision of enriching the lives of children by raising much-needed funds for local children's health and education through entertainment. Since its inception, Concerts For Kids (CFK) has changed significantly and developed into an organization that is not only known for its annual fundraising events, but is admired for its year-round involvement in the community. In just eight years, Concerts For Kids has distributed over $2.2 million in monetary and in-kind donations to beneficiaries.
Each year, CFK coordinates multiple community service projects, including Tiri’s Garden, Holidays for Kids and Sunday Sounds. Community Day is the largest of CFK’s service projects, as it involves corporate partners and hundreds of volunteers who unite to improve multiple facilities for the children of Colorado.
Through fundraising and community service, Concerts For Kids strives to achieve its mission to help the children in our community.
Concerts For Kids feeds the body, the mind and the soul by joyfully giving people the places and spaces to share of themselves in every way.
