Creating the Next Generation of Givers
This nonprofit creates places, spaces, and ideas for kids to become involved in community service, volunteering and giving year-round. It’s where kids learn their actions matter and that they can make a difference. It’s also where they can learn how good it feels to give back and be local heroes.

We started KidsGiving365 (originally Santa’s Elves – Kids Giving to Kids) because we wanted our kids to be smart, strong, kind and generous. We want them to have compassion and lend a hand to others when they grow up, just like our parents taught us to do.

The idea of KidsGiving365 has taken taken off because there’s nothing else like it in Colorado or around the country. We all want to teach children how to be kind and compassionate. With one small act together, we can create a ripple effect that can wash over our planet. Together, we can pay it forward and create the next generation of givers. We can create a better future for our kids, our grandkids, for other nonprofits, charities and volunteer organizations, because our kids today will grow up with huge hearts.

Please join us. Get your kids involved in one of our hands-on activities or let us know what you’re doing in your hometown so that others can do the same thing!
