Contribution to Your Community


The Foundation was created by the CDLA to raise funds for worthy charities and causes and to serve the Colorado community on behalf of the CDLA membership. Each year at the Annual Conference, the CDLA holds a “Hub’s Pub” event/raffle in honor of Daniel M. Hubbard, a former incoming president of the CDLA, who suffered a cardiac incident while riding his bicycle home from work and passed away. The funds raised at Hub’s Pub are used to fund the Foundation and in memory of Dan Hubbard and his passion for cycling, a portion of those proceeds are used to donate bicycles to Children’s Hospital and to children served through Adams, Broomfield and Jefferson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Since its inception, the Hub’s Pub event has donated 347 bicycles and raised over $158,448.

Funds are also donated to various causes including, but not limited to, Food Bank of the Rockies, Project C.U.R.E., Alzheimer’s Association, Jessie’s Heart, Florence Crittenton Services, Learn your Rights in Colorado (LYRIC), “Law School…Yes We Can,” Marshall Fire, Tamaya Horse Rescue, Leukemia Foundation, Mountain Resource Center providing food, heat and shelter for those in need, Craig Hospital, Pedal for Possible, and The Blue Bench, supporting an end to sexual assault.


The CDLA Foundation also raises funds through direct donations from members and member firms. In addition to monetary donations, the CDLA Foundation is also in need of donations of raffle items for the upcoming annual conference. Any donations from members and member firms of raffle items such as gift certificates, outdoor recreational equipment, overnight getaways, golf packages or memberships, and sporting event, concert, or festival tickets are strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated. Please contact Dani Bergman, the CDLA Community Outreach Director, at dbergman@murphydecker.com if you wish to donate a raffle item. Contributors of monetary donations will be recognized as Foundation Donors on the CDLA website, and all such donations are tax deductible. Donations can be made online with Square, by clicking here, filling out this form with credit card information, or sending a check made out to CDLA Foundation.
