Social Good

Giving back has been in our DNA from the start. Denver Music Institute is a part of a family of companies, called Emergent, that has committed to giving back. Every company gives the first 20% of profits to the 501(c)(3) UnbridledACTS – over $1.5 million, so far.

UnbridledACTS is an active organization and group of partnerships that do life differently. It’s about building restorative family-oriented communities, empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs, and promoting freedom and dignity for vulnerable and exploited populations throughout the world.

We also partner with a variety of organizations that are active in being a member of community transformation.
