Hannah and Allen Levy
Valued Members of our Philanthropic Family
Hannah and Allen Levy may have returned to Denver only a few years ago but their commitment to the community runs deep. Hannah, a New York native, met Allen, a Denver native, in the mid-1980s; she was an ARCO executive and he owned Allen Levy Builders, Inc. The couple has lived in both Los Angeles and Anchorage, but they always considered Denver home, and now live full-time in the Metro area.
When their estate attorney suggested The Denver Foundation as a charitable planning resource, the y acted quickly. “We had always planned to leave our estate to charity,” explains Hannah. “Over the years our wills reflected our intentions. We recently designated The Denver Foundation as our formal partner in achieving the goals for our estate.”
Passionate about supporting hu man service or ganizations, the couple has a special interest in hunger and homelessness—particularly as they affect children. Among their many volunteer activities, Allen serves on a committee that is building a kitchen for Food Bank of the Rockies and its Kids’ Café. Hannah works with Metro Volunteers on a Boomer Volunteer Engagement program. Hannah received a graduate degree in Children’s Services while in Alaska; and worked as a Family Coach in the Early Intervention Autism Project. Allen played a leadership role in the Interfaith Council of Anchorage; and was appointed to the Alaska Commission on Interfaith and Community Initiatives. They are both proud to be Leadership Denver graduates (1984 and 1986).
The couple is in the process of building a new home in Denver. They both enjoy hiking and biking, as well as skiing. “We also took up flyfishing while we lived in Alaska and look forward to fishing in Colorado.” The two have a new puppy, Zoe, their 7th Weimaraner over the years. “We are stuck on the breed because they are so smart,” Hannah says. “They are people dogs and they “demand” to be a full-fledged member of the family.”
We enjoy welcoming Hannah and Allen Levy to The Denver Foundation family.
