Since 1936, Bellco has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for Coloradans by giving back to the communities we serve. Whether it’s donating to non-profits, supporting worthwhile causes, or sponsoring community events, Bellco strives to make a difference locally, now and in the future, for our members. Here are some of the recent ways Bellco has been giving back.
Free for Kids
The Denver Art Museum (DAM) is internationally known for the way it helps visitors - including kids- explore and interact with art. And beginning in 2016, Bellco became the new presenting sponsor of the DAM's "Free for Kids" program (in partnership with the Reiman Foundation) helping ensure that even more kids get to experience the transformative power of art. Free for Kids allows youth ages 18 and under to visit the DAM for free. This includes school field trips and other you group visits. The program also enables the museum to cap youth pricing for all special tickets exhibitions at $5 and support a transportation fund for school bus trips.
Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade
Since 2005, Bellco has been proud to be the presenting sponsor of Denver's St. Patrick's Day Parade. This long-standing celebration held ever March, brings our community together to celebrate our diverse culture, features more than 10,000 marchers and 200 entrants including pipe bands; step dancers; floats; police, fire, and emergency service agencies; military members; equestrians; charities; marching bands; businesses; and our city's dignitaries in a truly amazing event. An estimated 350,000 people lined the streets of the Mile High City to enjoy last year's parade.
