"Where the spirit of Sharing and Caring lives in every member."


As members of ESA, we’ve been joining our collective skills to make the world a better place since 1929, volunteering more than 860,000 hours annually. In communities large and small in the U.S., Australia, and Canada, we create and manage hands-on volunteer activities and charitable fundraising events for large international charities and local worthy causes alike. Here are a few we support in Colorado.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 


In 1972, ESA officially recognized St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (the largest center for treatment and research of pediatric cancer and other childhood catastrophic diseases in the U.S.) as a national project.  As a result of ESA's enthusiastic response to a heartfelt personal appeal by the hospital's founder, Danny Thomas, the hospital became ESA's first internationally supported charity.  ESA has raised more than $290 million for the hospital and continues to help realize Danny's dream that "no child shall die in the dawn of life."

ESA's support for military personnel and their families began during World War II.  After the war, ESA chapters were often organized near military bases and among military families whose membership assisted them in keeping connected as they moved to new assignments around the world.  Much of ESA's early international growth was a result of military members forming new chapter as they moved to new bases.
