Non-Profit Partner Application

Partnerships with other non-profit groups in the community continue to be developed as an increasing
number of arts and special interest organizations build economic alliances between the Cherry Creek
Arts Festival (CCAF) and diverse segments in the community. The NPP program has provided well
over half a million dollars in shared proceeds to our partners over the life of the Arts Festival. 

The NPP Program is designed to support non-profit groups in our community by offering an
opportunity to 1) market their organization to the 380,000 annual visitors and 2) provide a revenue
generating opportunity by having the NPPs donate time by staffing beverage & merchandise booths
during the festival. Booth opportunities include soda products, beer products and fresh squeezed
lemonade. Revenue for a non-profit organization's involvement comes from a percentage of the retail
sales generated. CCAF relies on its income from retail sales as a primary revenue source, enabling
the Arts Festival to continue the event as an annual tradition in Denver, and to establish year-round
support of art and education programs.

Groups must be a non-profit organization with the ability to provide a 501(c)3 letter from the IRS
or a certificate of good standing from the Secretary of State. Proceed checks must be written
to the organization, not to any individuals.

Submit an application electronically - see below. 

Donations are calculated as a percentage of sales. Because sales fluctuate from year to year, and from booth to booth, we cannot provide an accurate estimate of how much your group can expect to receive, however, average donations typically range from approximately $500-$1000. (This estimate is total for all three days, not daily.)

• NPPs are assigned a booth that must be fully staffed by the same organization all three days, for
all hours of the festival, plus one hour before and after each day
. (Detailed shift scheduling
worksheets are available upon request.) The number of volunteers needed in each booth
varies from three to six volunteers per shift, depending on the booth assignment. 
• Volunteers in beer/alcohol booths must be at least 21-years of age. Volunteers in soft drink/lemonade
booths must be at least 16-years of age with adult supervision at all times. 
• CCAF is based on a cash system. NPP volunteers must be willing and able to handle cash
properly and adhere to festival finance procedures. 
• Retail operations include inventory systems to track the yields and sales at each booth.  NPPs will
be responsible for completing inventory paperwork as instructed. One representative from each shift
will be designated “Booth Supervisor” and complete the associated requirements. 
• CCAF will provide a mandatory virtual training and an optional in-person training
to learn policies and procedures. 
• Consistent communication, positive attitudes and lots of fun are also required!
