Denver Gorilla Run Sponsor
The Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund (MGCF) is dedicated to the conservation and protection of the highly endangered mountain gorillas in Africa, their habitat, and working with the people around the National Parks.
The discovery of the Mountain Gorillas took place in the Virunga Mountains, on October 17th, 1902, by Captain Robert von Beringe. In celebration of this event and to promote the preservation of the Mountain Gorillas, the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund (MGCF) is undertaking several projects to achieve the goal of saving these gorillas from extinction. The Current Projects section gives a brief description of eight of these projects. The "Preservation through Visualization" portion of this project promotes the number one task set before the MGCF.
In 1987, only 248 Mountain Gorillas lived in the wild. Because of projects coordinated by the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, there are now about 720 living in the wild. The Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund is dedicated to ensuring the future of the Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. By providing a partnership of business, wildlife conservation, and community development, MGCF addresses the single biggest challenge facing preservation of these animals today; how do we help communities in developing areas grow and prosper without destroying precious habitat or the Mountain Gorillas, who call it home.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting lymphoma research. Our organization is based in Denver, Colorado and was founded by a group of aspiring physicians attending the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Three of our classmates have suffered from lymphoma, so we were inspired to fight lymphoma together.

In 1978, Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation was formally established as a separate charitable 501(c)(3) organization dedicated solely to advancing the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado. The Foundation has three purposes:
- Educating and engaging the community on the hospital’s behalf
- Fundraising for the hospital
- Investing funds raised on behalf of the hospital
The foundation staff believes deeply that all children should have the opportunity for a bright and healthy future. Comprised of more than 50 fundraising professionals, the foundation is committed to engaging with the community to facilitate philanthropic support for the children and families served at Children’s Colorado.
Support for the hospital can be seen in a variety of ways as community leaders contribute to our mission by giving outright gifts, gifts in kind, volunteering their time and energy at a wide variety of fundraising events, corporate partnerships, gifts honoring loved ones, planned giving, and foundation grants.
