Sponsor an entire school — A significant contribution from your organization enables JA to provide an entire school of students with the tools they need to build their dreams.
Get involved in an event — Special events, like JA Bowl-A-Thon, JA Stock Market Challenge, Success on the Green Golf Classic and The Colorado Business Hall of Fame are perfect ways for local businesses to participate in fundraising and gain exposure among Denver’s business community.
