We Put the Fun in Fundraising!

Your Donation to FDRD will make a difference!

DonaTE

FDRD’s various fundraising events throughout the year benefit all of our programs and projects. Similar to donations and membership dues, the funds raised are unrestricted, therefore vital to our organization!

Volunteering for a FDRD fundraising event is just as valuable to us as time spent volunteering for trail and forest projects. If your trail maintenance days are behind you or you just are not that into digging dirt and carrying logs, these volunteer opportunities are much less physically demanding. Purchasing tickets and attending FDRD fundraising events is another great way to give back, especially if you do not have the time to volunteer.

CO Gives DayTuesday, December 6th, 2022

Volunteers are not needed at this event.

This annual, statewide movement celebrates and increases philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. The $1.5 Million Incentive Fund made possible by Community First Foundation, FirstBank and other community members boosts the value of every donation – the more we are able to fundraise, the more additional money we receive from the Community First Foundation.
