Welcome to Groundwork Denver!
We partner with lower-income communities to improve the physical environment and promote health and well-being. We are “doers”, not “talkers”. We plant trees, we improve parks, we clean up rivers and the air, we insulate houses, we promote biking, we grow food, and we coordinate hundreds of volunteers to help. We support the growth and development of leaders from the neighborhoods where we work through our Green Team youth employment and leadership program. We build bridges between residents, businesses and government to achieve the common goal of positive environmental change. Our work promotes the inclusion of the diverse population of our communities in decision-making and action, as well as advocates for equal access to a clean and healthy environment for everyone.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and support the health and well-being of our own community.
Keep current on what we have going on, our needs and opportunities by joining our mailing list.

Groundwork Denver is an incredibly efficient organization. Over 93% of our funding goes directly to program services, with very little spent on administrative and overhead, and volunteers account for thousands of hours per year of our work. Still, we have to pay the rent, keep the computers running, buy supplies and pay staff who have committed their careers to our mission. Your personal contribution is essential to our ability to accomplish so much. Donations to Groundwork Denver are tax deductible.
