Amp the Cause is a Denver-based nonprofit organization that improves the lives of families through entertainment, annual events and community service projects. We raise critical health and education funds, generate awareness of local charities, use monetary and in-kind donations to help children with life-threatening illnesses, and provide opportunities for kids to participate in educational programs in a safe and healthy environment.
Amp the Cause was founded in 2004 by Christie and Walter Isenberg based on the belief that all children should be entitled to the best healthcare available and to receive a quality education. Initial efforts focused on raising funds through an annual concert with monies raised donated to selected non-profit organizations such as Children’s Hospital Colorado and Denver Public Schools.
Today Amp the Cause helps to support over 50 child-focused organizations annually through its fundraising events and community service projects. These events include Denver Day of Rock, Community Day, Holiday’s For Kids and Celebrity Waiter.
Since its inception, Amp the Cause has distributed more than $7 million in monetary and in-kind donations to our beneficiaries.
I requested to volunteer and expressed my interest, but nobody got back to me. If it had been cancelled or they didn’t need my help, I would have still appreciated an answer. Regardless, it appears that they were doing good and it’s important work, so although I was disappointed, I’m glad they are doing what they are.
