Bonfire 2023

At Catholic schools across the Archdiocese of Denver, kids are learning something new this year.  Some kids are learning that the Church is a place where they belong — a place where they matter, and where they’re loved. Other kids are learning to form friendships with peers who have significant disabilities, and they’re learning that dignity comes from being made in the image of God. Because of the FIRE Foundation and courageous school leaders, and because of you, kids with significant disabilities — like Liam, and Anna, and Beau, and Kayla — are thriving in Colorado Catholic schools. And so are their peers. Because of the generosity of our last year’s sponsors and donors, FIRE gave $350,000 in grant funding to eight Catholic schools right here in Colorado.
The FIRE Foundation will host our annual BonFIRE gala on August 26th, 2023 at the University of Denver’s Cable Center. We aim to raise $300,000 at BonFIRE, to give grant funding to Colorado Catholic schools committed to enrolling kids with significant disabilities.
Your help – and leadership – is the way we’ll get there. Help us spark a renewal in Catholic special education, as a gala sponsor, partner, or advertiser.
