About Us

Amplifying the impact of non-profits serving children and families.

Who We Are

Amp the Cause is a Denver-based nonprofit organization that improves the lives of families through entertainment, annual events and community service projects.

We raise critical health and education funds, generate awareness of local charities, use monetary and in-kind donations to help children with life-threatening illnesses, and provide opportunities for kids to participate in educational programs in a safe and healthy environment.


Since Christie and Walter Isenberg founded Amp the Cause—Formerly Concerts for Kids—in 2004, the organization has distributed more than $6 million in monetary and in-kind donations to our beneficiaries.
