The partnership behind the Gift Card initiative
The West Denver Marketplaces Gift Card initiative is funded by a Neighborhood Activation grant from Denver Economic Opportunity and Development (DEDO). The Denver Housing Authority (DHA), in partnership with BuCu West and West Denver Renaissance Collaborative (WDRC), initiated the grant as a responsive solution to community needs in West Denver. District 3 Councilwoman Jaime Torres and Sun Valley Kitchen are also supportive stakeholders in the initiative.
This collaborative project will elevate economic activity by increasing awareness of culturally unique and BIPOC-owned businesses and encouraging demand for the food, products, and services of small businesses throughout west Denver.
The Neighborhood Activation grant was approved in October 2022, providing funding to cover admin costs, promotional events, and communications and marketing efforts around this Gift Card.
