Marti Awad Invests in the Denver Health Foundation

Marti has been an active volunteer in the Denver community since she moved there in 2005. Her greatest contribution has been to the Denver Health Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising arm of the Denver Health & Hospital Authority. Denver Health is one of the most important institutions in its community–one third of all Denver residents receive their health care through Denver Health Hospital and its community and school based health centers. Over 40% of that care has been to vulnerable uninsured populations.

Marti was drawn to the organization because of its mission to provide high quality care to all Denver residents regardless of ability to pay. She has served on the board of the Foundation since 2006 and that same year co-founded the Level One Society Board, an affiliated young professionals community board focused on finding creative new ways to support Denver Health. She led the group as Board Chair through 2010 and continues to serve today as a member of the board and Chair of the Major Gifts Committee.

Marti earned Honorable Mention for the 2015 Community Leadership Awards.
