HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS:

Click here to book your stay at the Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver or call 303-365-1234 and mention you are with the African Leadership Group to receive the special group rate of $109 per night including breakfast.

African Leadership Group (ALG) is an established, 15-year-old Colorado nonprofit created to serve and improve the quality of life of the African immigrant community. We do this through social, education and economic programs such as youth empowerment and public speaking classes reaching thousands of individuals. Every year during the month of August, we celebrate loudly and proudly the impact African immigrants have in the state of Colorado.

Covid-19 pandemic struck the entire world like a lightning bolt, school districts shutdown, businesses closed, living rooms became offices and schools, everyone had to self-quarantine. Our lives as we knew it suddenly changed in an instant!

The African Immigrant community reached out to us for help and we refused to watch our kids fall behind and fail in school, we were in a position to respond. We redirected resources to the needs of the community because this is what mattered in the moment. We moved all in-person programs to virtual!

With the support of donors and partners, we implemented the following programs:

  • Remote learning pod
  • Online tutoring
  • Family Assistance Gift card
  • Meal delivery

These were not programming we were doing before and no-one else was responding to the need.

6th Annual Afrik Impact Fundraising Event

We would like to invite you to join us as a sponsor for our 6th Annual Afrik Impact Fundraiser during the month of August. To kick off the events, we will begin with a Community Celebration and concert at the Levitt Pavilion in Denver on Saturday, August 7; an Educational Forum on Monday, August 9; a Business Summit on Wednesday, August 11; our annual Gala, our main event on Friday, August 13; and concluding the African Immigrant celebration month with a concert on Thursday, August 26 at the Arvada Center featuring Carlou D.

Mission & Purpose

Mission: To celebrate the impact of the African Immigrants in the state of Colorado and to honor our accomplishments.

Purpose: With a focus on social, educational and economic impact, the African Leadership Group hosts a major Fundraising event each year. The purpose of this event is to celebrate our collective accomplishments, recognize our community champions, and cast the vision for our next year of policy and advocacy work. In addition, Afrik Impact is part of our public persuasion campaign to have the State of Colorado issue a proclamation to officially establish August as African Immigrant Month. In all of this, we celebrate loud and proud, the positive impact of African people in Colorado and honor our contributions. This year’s theme is “Standing Taller and Prouder Than Ever”.

Sponsorships

This event provides sponsors a unique opportunity to experience the impact African immigrants have in Colorado. Your philanthropic support will help us achieve our goal of equity in the community, increase the number of community members we touch, and fund our growth as we continue to expand programs and initiatives. We are excited to announce our featured speaker for the Gala, Professor Moussa Seydi at Cheikh Anta Diop University (UCAD), Dakar, Senegal. As a sponsor you will also have the opportunity during our VIP cocktail hour to interact with our guest speakers and other dignitaries, state and local elected officials and local leaders. We would be honored to have you as a sponsor and guest during the Afrik Impact month-long celebration. Click here for detailed information on sponsorship packages. Thank you for your consideration.
