In 2005, the Alumni created the Denver Broncos Alumni Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The Charities and the Association work in tandem to support organizations throughout the metro Denver region and beyond, helping to change the lives of at-risk youth and create a legacy for which the Broncos Alumni can be proud.
The Alumni have worked with thousands of youth over the years, through numerous organizations, foundations and events. Their role as former professional football players with the Denver Broncos brings a higher profile role and impact in their involvement. The celebrity status that they bring to their partnering organizations helps establish and grow a network of influence that will last lifetimes.

About the Denver Red Shield
Founded more than 130 years ago by William Booth, The Salvation Army is a religious and social service organization, a branch of the Christian Church dedicated to the battle against sin and despair.
There is an integrated ministry to body, mind and soul. The Army seeks not only to improve the physical environment and provide for material needs, but also to reveal the power of Christ's love. Its social services programs assist children, the elderly, families, and those battling addiction.
The Western Territory, one of four territories in USA, operates under the leadership of Commissioner James Knaggs. The territory is divided geographically into 10 divisions, each headed by a divisional commander.
Divisions are comprised of the corps community centers or churches and other specialized service centers. The corps is the basic service unit of The Salvation Army and provides religious and social services adapted to the needs of the community.
