Give Today

Your contributions will help give refugees a new start in Colorado and provide vital support toward self-sufficiency. ACC accepts both financial and in-kind donations. Together we can make a better community.

You can donate by clicking to the link below or you can donate by mail to ECDC-African Community Center at 925 S Niagara Street Suite 200 Denver, CO 80224. Setting up a recurring donation makes it easy for you to support the community on an ongoing basis.

The Ethiopian Community Development Council, Inc. is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization and is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.


 We fully furnish an apartment for each newly arriving family with all the furniture and home goods you would need to start in a new place. We also provide basic care items and toiletries, emergency food supplies, weather appropriate clothing as well as job training items.

Partnership with the Denver community is essential to providing newly arrived refugees with the basic items they need to start their lives here.  Here are three ways that you can help.

  1. Sponsor a New Family
    ACC will provide you with the supply list of items needed for a newly arriving family. You commit to acquire all of the items on the list for the family, whether by purchasing them directly or by soliciting donations from your community.  This is a great opportunity for individuals, groups of friends, businesses, school classes, churches, etc.  Contact to make arrangements.
  2. Organize a Donation Drive
    Get together with your neighbors, friends or colleagues and collect items to support refugees.  Contact to find out what items are currently needed in large quantities.
  3. Donation Drop-Off

     Drop off times will be Monday-Thursday between 10 AM & 4 PM.
