At CRS Insurance Brokerage, we believe that caring for others and reinvesting in our community is not only our responsibility but a privilege we wholeheartedly embrace. This belief is the driving force behind CRS Gives Back, our Colorado-based nonprofit striving to support underserved populations. Leveraging relationships with our valued and trusted partners—relationships formed over many years of service—we aim to make a real difference in the lives of those we serve.

 

The Origin of CRS Gives Back

CRS Gives Back was founded out of a deep commitment to community service. Our founders recognized the pressing needs within our community and felt compelled to act. Initially focused on small-scale initiatives, our efforts quickly expanded as we saw the positive impact of our work. Today, CRS Gives Back continues to grow, driven by the same passion and dedication that inspired its inception.

 

Our Mission and Core Values

Our mission is to support and uplift underserved populations through targeted programs and initiatives. We are guided by core values of empathy, integrity, and community engagement, which align seamlessly with the principles of CRS Insurance Brokerage. These values inform every aspect of our work, ensuring that our efforts are both meaningful and impactful.

 

Our Initiatives and Programs

CRS Gives Back is involved in a variety of initiatives aimed at addressing key community needs. Our community health and wellness programs focus on providing essential services and support to those lacking access to healthcare. Education and youth empowerment projects aim to equip young people with the tools they need to succeed. Additionally, our housing and homelessness support initiatives strive to provide safe and stable living conditions for those in need. Each of these programs has touched countless lives, offering hope and opportunity where it’s needed most.

In 2023 we participated for the fifth time in the Courage Classic, a two-day annual bicycle event that brings together riders, volunteers, sponsors, friends, and families to support Children’s Hospital Colorado. We had 20 riders and 8 volunteers and raised over $15,000 for the cause! In June 2024, we hosted our 2nd Annual Golf Classic, raising over $40,000 to invest back in our community partners. We recently spent the afternoon at Savio House beautifying their safe space playground, organizing their family visitation playrooms, washing the cars they use to transport to and from therapy sessions, and cleaning up around the parking lots and buildings. This July we will spend the day with We Don’t Waste, hosting a mobile food market. They developed this initiative to reach further into the community, serving people with healthy, nutritious food, such as fresh fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and dairy.

 

Partnerships and Collaborations

Our success would not be possible without the strong partnerships we’ve formed with other organizations and community leaders. These collaborations amplify our efforts, allowing us to reach more people and create a more significant impact. With the support of our generous sponsors and partners, we raised over $50,000 in 2023 and made donations to the following organizations:

  • Savio House: $16,454
  • Denver Kids: $16, 454
  • Urban Peak: $10,000
  • Colorado Friendship: $5,000
  • We Don’t Waste: $5,000

 

Volunteer History

Our volunteers are the backbone of CRS Gives Back. Their dedication and hard work have transformed the lives of many. When we turned our philanthropic committee into an official non-profit, we never imagined the incredible impact we would have on the community in just two short years. We’ve grown from a group of occasional volunteers to a powerful force, raising tens of thousands of dollars and actively working on the ground level to make our community a better place for those less fortunate. Witnessing our volunteers deeply engage with the local community has been a true blessing. This journey has not only transformed the lives of those we support but also profoundly enriched the lives of our volunteers. Being part of CRS Gives Back has been an incredibly rewarding experience, and we are proud of the difference we continue to make every day.

 

Future Goals and Aspirations

We are so proud of how much  CRS Gives Back has accomplished, and we have ambitious plans for the future. We aim to launch new projects, extend our existing programs, and continue building strong community partnerships. Our long-term vision is to create a sustainable, positive impact that will benefit generations to come.
