Join us Tuesday, December 7 as we celebrate Colorado’s Largest Single Day of Giving!

At Southwest Airlines, our Heart is to take care of people because we are more than an airline; we are your neighbor. In the spirit of the giving season and to celebrate Colorado Gives Day, Southwest is giving free skate rentals to all who join us at the Downtown Denver Rink on Tuesday, December 7. That’s not all—Southwest will be at the rink from 3:00 pm–5:00 pm MT with four of our community partners: Amp the Cause, Latin American Education Foundation, SistahBiz, and Minds Matter Colorado. We will be celebrating the mission and visions of these organizations! We invite you to come out to the Rink for free skate rentals, fun, and some surprises!

We love putting our Mile High Heart into action to serve our community and to make Colorado a better place for all. That’s why so much of our work centers on supporting our Employees, Customers, and community partners. We believe collaboration can advance our impact, so we partner with like-minded people and organizations to promote resilience and civility in our communities. We are proud to support the mission of these Denver-based organizations:

 

Amp the Cause

Amp the Cause is a nonprofit organization that raises funds, awareness, and provides volunteerism for over 55 beneficiary organizations primarily focused on serving children and their families in Colorado. Amp the Cause does so through annual events and community service projects, amplifying organizations so they can focus on critical needs such as staffing and programming. Amp the Cause relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations, volunteers, and partnerships, like with Southwest Airlines, to continue to propel the nearly $10.5 million give back it's had since 2004 within the community it serves.

 

The Latin American Educational Foundation

The Latin American Educational Foundation provides services and programs to help Colorado’s Hispanic and Latino students successfully navigate the college-going process. Each year LAEF provides direct scholarships to Colorado’s most talented Hispanic and Latino students, helping them pursue their dreams of a college education. LAEF’s long-term goals are to improve the educational, economic, and leadership status of all Hispanics and Latinos in Colorado.

 

Minds Matter Colorado

Minds Matter Colorado connects driven and determined students from low-income families with the people, preparation, and possibilities to succeed in college, create their future, and change the world. Through three years of people (mentors), preparation (after-school programming), and possibilities (summer college experiences), 100% of their graduates get into college with scholarships. Since 2004, they’ve helped hundreds of students get into college, supported thousands of volunteers in making a difference, and avoided millions of dollars in loans for their graduates.

 

SistahBiz®

SistahBiz® provides Black women business owners with free and low-cost coaching, training, technical assistance, capital, and a sistahood to ensure their growth beyond solopreneurship, and close racial equity gaps in entrepreneurship. They envision a thriving, vibrant community of Black women business leaders who create unprecedented generational wealth through entrepreneurship.

 

Throughout our 15 years of service to Denver, Southwest has invested nearly $8 million through travel and cash contributions to nearly 2,500 organizations in Colorado. Our Employees have volunteered more than 62,000 hours for 1,600 organizations throughout the Denver area since 2006.
