Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver is thrilled that our home team, the Denver Broncos, have chosen to be a champion of affordable housing initiatives in their community. The Denver Broncos have invested in Habitat Denver’s mission since 2012 and have contributed over $200,000 in three short years. The greater Broncos community also lends many helping hands out at construction sites; players, wives, staff, and cheerleaders can be spotted side by side Habitat partner families building affordable homes for low-income families.
The largest investment of the Broncos time and energy is their partnership with Habitat Denver’s Champions Build Series, a compilation of five themed builds which engage unique leaders in the Denver community: Women Build Week, Faith Leadership Build, CEO Build, and the Emerging Leaders Build. In 2014, Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis hosted Habitat’s annual CEO Build, which brought together more than 30 Denver executives and in one day raised $85,000 in support of the Sable Ridge community.
In 2015 the Denver Broncos again partnered with the Champions Build Series which engaged more than 180 community members, resulted in $100,000 of additional donations, and supported the construction of seven Habitat for Humanity homes. This particular event brought added awareness for Habitat’s work through news stories on local TV stations, social media, and other Broncos platforms.
Habitat Metro Denver is grateful to the Denver Broncos for their role in the Champions Build Series and for integrating key Broncos’ stakeholders into each of the the builds. Habitat deeply values this partnership and looks forward to building on the success of the Champions Build Series in years to come.
