Benefiting the Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation

World-Class Care, Fueled by Giving.
As a nonprofit, Children's Colorado began because the community came together, and it continues to be supported by the community. Our work is fueled by giving to the Children's Fund, with over, donors making more than, unrestricted gifts each year.

 
Serving the Greatest Needs of Patients and Families
Effective October 1, 2020, Castle Rock Autoplex will donate $10.00 per vehicle sold to Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation.
Our donation goes to the Children's Fund, which helps the hospital address the greatest needs of our patients and families and directs funds toward where they can do the most good. By giving to the Children's Fund, Castle Rock will help make an immediate and lasting difference in every aspect of care that patients receive.
Unrestricted gifts provide Children's Colorado with the flexibility to allocate resources in the most strategic way possible.
Just as health care providers in their emergency department triage patients based on the severity of their illness or
injury, their team uses the Children's Fund to respond quickly to the most urgent priorities throughout the hospital's healthcare system, ensuring kids and families have the tools, resources, treatments and services they need to heal.
