Radio for Change | Colorado

Chuck Lontine has experienced the honor of working with some of the most contemplative, thoughtful and meaningful non-profits in the state of Colorado.

We have written, produced and aired over 1000 community service messages for Feed Colorado, The Boulder County Homeless Shelter, The Round Up River Ranch in Eagle County and The Blue Bench in Denver (a very special project for Chuck).

Our Fall 2015 project includes a capital campaign for The Westwood Food Co-op + Re:Vision.

Re:Vision has become a heart and soul project to feed and provide a better life for the very neighborhood in West Denver that Chuck grew up in as a little boy.

We are especially proud of this pay it forward initiative that Chuck has branded "Play It Forward" with the goal of building a Halo Network for our non-profit partners around the state.  

To date, our team has raised over $500,000.00 for local non-profits and charities (beginning with Radio for Change in Boulder in 2000). Inspired by: Bill Shores' The Cathedral Within and Giving by Bill Clinton, we've unlocked the capacity of live + local radio to do great things for the people and communities these radio stations serve.

Our radio partners have created a network of giving from around the state. Including our radio station in Boulder and Halo Affiliates in Denver, Aspen and Telluride.
