Love to bake?
This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!

At Cake4Kids we work to make sure every at-risk youth knows they matter, through the simple gesture of a personalized cake, batch of cupcakes, or cookies, bars, and brownies in celebration of their birthday, graduation, or adoption.

Since our founding in 2010, we have supported as many underserved youths as possible in the communities we serve, including youth experiencing homelessness, victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, youth in foster care, immigrant minors, and those living at or below the poverty line. We proudly serve the Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins areas and need your help to make a difference -- become a volunteer baker today!

It's Easy To Volunteer
Step 1: Our local agency partners submit each youth's dream request to us, from plain brownies to fondant covered cakes, and everything in between
Step 2: You choose which child's request to sign up for, based on the theme, the type of dessert, or even the delivery time and location
Step 3: You bake and decorate the sweets in your home kitchen, then deliver to the agency that placed the request

If you like to bake and decorate, you will love to volunteer with Cake4Kids!
- Volunteer on your own, with a friend, or with your teen (must be 16 or older to participate)
- Bake as little or as often as you'd like...it's totally up to you
- Deliver Monday-Friday during business hours
- Attend our 1-hour online volunteer orientation (required)

Mission Statement

What We Do: We deliver smiles to underserved youth, one birthday cake at a time. Our volunteer bakers, like you, bake and deliver homemade custom birthday cakes, cupcakes and cookies for those who are in foster care, victims of violence or human trafficking, experiencing homeless, LGBTQ+, refugees, or living at or below the poverty line. The seemingly simple gift of a homemade, custom sweet gives the youth joy and helps to build their self-esteem. It's amazing the impact a single cake can make!

Description

Cake4Kids is a National 501c3, started in 2010, providing free custom birthday cakes, cupcakes or cookies to underserved youth. What began as the grassroots effort of our founder and some friends delivering cakes to a handful of cakes to foster children in the San Francisco Bay Area, has grown into a nationwide organization that serves at-risk youth in 17 states (and counting!). To date, Cake4Kids has provided over 57,000 cakes.

There are still thousands and thousands more youth who need our support, so let's make an impact, together!
