Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.



GIVE Denver partners with corporate and individual sponsors to help secure various donations that will support the success of DHS events. Typical sponsored events are those that prevent abuse and exploitation of children, the elderly, and other vulnerable populations as well as events that commemorate milestones of children and families assisted by DHS, including family reunifications, adoptions, and other key moments. Monetary donations are always welcome and are tax deductible!

Please make checks payable to Denver Human Services. You can drop off checks any time the GIVE Center is open or mail them to:

The GIVE Center
