Connections

Arvada is a growing, changing city, home to all sorts of different people. AVA exists to build connections between organizations that need money and people who have money to give. We evaluate the needs of the community, select nonprofits that are making significant impact in important areas, and create an easy, convenient process for giving. For nonprofits, we can help you build your reputation and connect with people who can help you grow. For philanthropists, we can make sure that your generosity makes the maximum impact in your community!

Opportunity

We believe that all Arvadans deserve the opportunity to succeed and to showcase their talents. We support organizations that help all people, from youth to senior citizens, achieve their full potential. Some of the ways that we support opportunities in Arvada include:
• Donating to the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth, which recognizes remarkable young people who have overcome obstacles and contributed to their neighborhoods
• Contributing to the Arvada Colts, a nonprofit youth baseball league that enriches Arvada by engaging talented young people
• Helping to fund the Jefferson County Business Education Alliance, which provides no-cost training to high school students to prepare them to enter the job market

Community

At AVA, we love making Arvada a better place to live and work. Some of our projects for building the Arvada community include:
• Contributing to the Arvada Historical Society, which documents our history and provides educational opportunities for the community
• Donating to Bessie’s Hope, which develops relationships between youth and senior citizens in order to keep seniors engaged and involved in their neighborhoods
• Supporting the Northey Foundation Drug Take-Back event, which funds scholarships for Arvada high school students

Creativity

Arts and creativity are an exciting aspect of life in Arvada. AVA aspires to create a city where everyone has access to great art and opportunities to express themselves, and where everyone has the opportunity to learn in exciting and creative ways. Some of the ways we promote creative education in our neighborhoods include:
• Commissioning and paying for a sculpture built specifically for Arvada by the world-renowned sculptor DL Cooper
• Supporting the Outdoor Lab Foundation, which gives Arvada students an exploratory, hands-on science learning experience in the beautiful Colorado mountains
• Donating to the Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering, which brings local musicians and music-lovers together for a weekend of creative fun
