Many families who get care through CHIP live below the federal poverty level, which impacts their access to healthcare and supportive services. Several programs and charities help support our mission.
Telluride AIDS Benefit
Since 1994, the Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB) has donated millions to HIV and AIDS education, advocacy, clinical care and other nonprofits, including CHIP. TAB is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to fight HIV and AIDS by heightening awareness, as well as generating financial support for educational programs and medical care. CHIP receives a generous amount of funding from TAB, which is held every year in March. The funds are vital to CHIP’s success. These funds benefit our families through adherence support events, emergency financial assistance, outpatient medical support, medication co-pay assistance and transportation.
AIDS Walk Colorado is the Rocky Mountain region’s largest and most successful HIV and AIDS fundraiser. CHIP is a partner agency for AIDS Walk and receives a portion of the funds raised at this event. More than 8,000 people from throughout the state come together as a community, fueled by donations from more than 13,000 individuals, to raise money for vital services for those with HIV or AIDS and more than 20 other AIDS service organizations.
