Since 1992, YouthBiz has had extraordinary success training more than 1500 youth (ages range from 13 to 21) in programs while providing them with an
after-school job. YouthBiz’s mission is to develop business, academic, and
leadership skills in youth who lack the opportunity to discover and experience their innate ability to invest in themselves and their community. Youth participating in YouthBiz are from one of Denver’s toughest neighborhoods attending schools such as Cole Middle School and Manual High
School. Our goals are to keep youth in school, to keep them out of
trouble, and to prepare them for the future.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease, which affects tens of thousands of children and adults in the United States. More than 10 million Americans are unknowing, symptomless carriers of the defective gene. When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was created in 1955, children with CF rarely lived long enough to even attend elementary school. Today, thanks to the wise investments by the CF Foundation in innovative research and comprehensive care programs, the median age of survival for a person with CF is now in the mid-30s. Although the CF Foundation is proud of the great strides it has made toward a cure, the need for more funding is even more crucial as we have yet to save a single life from this devastating disease. The CF Foundation has been recognized by such publications as Forbes and SmartMoney for its innovative and efficient approach to curing a genetic disease. In 2004, more than 91 cents of every dollar of revenue raised was available for investment in vital CF programs.
